Interns are a vital part of the Children's Defense Fund - Texas team.

We offer year-round internships in Austin, Houston and McAllen. Some internships give preference to certain majors, but anyone with a strong interest in child advocacy is encouraged to apply. Our interns gain knowledge, skills, and experiences in the most critical issues facing children and develop a unique insider's view of non-profit child advocacy, public policy, communications and outreach, and development all while helping to make a difference in the lives of Texas children.
