The Summer Internship Program is designed to be mutually beneficial for selected interns and for the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region. The program provides students the opportunity to gain leadership, communication, and practical skills in a professional setting and in their areas of interest, while serving their communities. The program gives the American Red Cross the ability to better fulfill its mission and services to the community by benefiting from the skills and dedication of a committed group of student interns.
The Summer Internship Program is a nine week program held between the months of June-August. Specific dates of the program are based on school calendars in the given year. Interns can work in any of the Los Angeles Region chapter or blood services offices* including Arcadia, Canoga Park, Long Beach, Pasadena, Pomona, and West LA.
All internships through the program are unpaid; however, academic credit can be given if applicable to an intern’s situation. Students can also fulfill community service requirements through their participation in the program. The program will be facilitated by Youth and Young Adult Services (YAYA), part of the Community and Volunteer Engagement Department.
Summer interns must be students enrolled at accredited high schools, colleges, or universities. The selection committee makes no discrimination based on place of residence, sex, national origin, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, or disability. Selected interns will comply with American Red Cross policies and must become a registered volunteer. Ideally, interns continue their involvement with the American Red Cross after completing their internship, although it is not a program requirement.
