Voices for Virginia’s Children is thrilled to open the application period for our 2024 Summer Communications Internship!

Does brainstorming creative strategies for social media, fundraising, and stakeholder engagement sound exciting to you? Are you looking for an opportunity to build your professional experience while supporting an outcomes-driven organization that advocates for the well-being of young people across the State of Virginia?
