Internship Opportunities

GMHC, the nation’s oldest and largest AIDS service organization, provides exciting internship opportunities to nurture and develop talent while providing additional support in the fight against AIDS. In addition, students experience the distinct character of working in a nonprofit work environment. As an AIDS service organization dedicated to providing education, advocacy, and direct services to men, women, and children infected or affected by HIV/AIDS, GMHC has supervised internships in a variety of departments and units of our agency. 

We encourage students to further explore our website to gain a broad understanding of the services we provide and the specific area of the agency they would like to intern in.

Eligibility and Guidelines

GMHC Internship opportunities are open to qualified individuals enrolled in an accredited academic institution. Since we are a nonprofit environment, our internships are unpaid, but we will support academic institution requirements for students by completing all paperwork required by the intern’s school or program.


All interns will have direct supervision from a GMHC staff member. Our supervisors are committed to ensuring that interns have appropriate and clearly directed assignments that are related to the student academic program as well as being relevant to the day to day operations of the agency.
