Intern With Us
Brighter Bites offers unpaid internships to students and non-students interested in public health, nutrition, and nonprofit work. We invite you to join our program staff in the field or work behind the scenes building our brand and developing relationships. Our interns are exposed to all components of Brighter Bites to gain a well-rounded understanding of how a public health community nutrition nonprofit operates.
Brighter Bites offers three types of internships that support our city programs in three cohorts: fall, spring, and summer. Please be aware that not all intern positions are always available in every city or in every cohort.
If you would like to be considered for an internship, please review the position descriptions below for more details and requirements. Then fill out the online application.
