Community Service-Based

Internships with MHF are an opportunity to gain valuable career experience while doing charity work to help people in need.

As we are a registered 501(c)(3) public charity serving people in need, internship hours can be counted toward most school or court requirements for community service.

Volunteer Roles

At this time, internships are currently unpaid volunteer roles. We hope to offer paid internships in the future, but right now as a charity on a tiny budget, we don't have enough funding to do so.

We can at least promise that your work will go toward helping people truly in need.

Time Commitment

Internships involve a commitment of 2-3 hours per day or 10-15 hours per week.

Location

We offer:

  • Fully or partly-remote internship positions

  • In-person internships at our Palmdale, CA office or at various locations throughout the Antelope Valley
