Volunteer & Intern Program (VIP)

The OAG seeks dedicated, motivated people who possess a genuine desire to perform public service. However, the selection process for the Internship Program is highly competitive. Candidates are selected based on scholastic achievement (including grade point average), demonstrated leadership skills, participation in extracurricular activities, oral and written communication skills, as well as prior experience in their area of concentration.

Internships are unique and tailored to each student's needs, interests, and schedule. As an intern, you will be able to select your preferred division (based on availability) and work flexible hours between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. You will work under the close supervision of your respective division supervisor, while improving your skills and performing an important civic duty.

More than 90 percent of our interns in the Admin/Legal Divisions are undergraduate, graduate, and law students. However, we do encourage volunteers to offer their insight and expertise as well. Internships are unpaid and generally last three months, although this period is flexible. Interns and volunteers are welcome year-round, on a semester basis with terms beginning in the Spring (January through April), Summer (May through August), and Fall (September through December).
