Gluten-Free Internships with the CDF
When I was in college, I had a fun internship at a radio station and another one with an awesome graphic design professor which gave me a lot of great experience. Today when I discovered an internship with the Celiac Disease Foundation, I was almost jealous that I wasn't back in college and living in California. This sounds like a great opportunity, especially for someone that is living with Celiac and interested in exploring the world of non-profit organizations. Below is the full internship description. Please contact the CDF directly if you have any questions about this position.

Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) Internship

CDF Interns are integral members of the CDF National Office, and quickly become fully immersed in the non-profit celiac and gluten-free world. Interns work closely with directors of Operations, Development, Communications, and Outreach. The internship is a valuable experience for any student wishing to learn more about non-profit organizations, public health, PR and marketing, and disease/cause-related organizations.
