DC Rape Crisis Center Internship & Fellowship Program

The DCRCC Internship and Fellowship Program is a leadership development program focused on cultivating future leaders to power a culture of consent.  Based primarily out of Light House Headquarters Office, although some positions have been approved to work remotely, the internship and fellowship program is integrated into all of our departments to offer interns and fellows access to a variety of opportunities.

The Intern and Fellow Program is a strong leadership development program providing young professionals with training and on-the-ground practical experiences in building a culture of consent. After participating in an intensive 50 hour training and orientation process, interns and fellows engage in meaningful projects, continuing education and professional development activities.  DCRCC has supported interns and fellows since its inception in 1972, many of whom have gone on to fill important roles in the public service sector.

What support can I expect from DCRCC as an intern or fellow?

DCRCC will:

  • Provide a 50 hour training to orient, equip and prepare you for partnership with DCRCC
  • Work with you to create a personal work plan to guide our collaboration together during your time of service as an intern or fellow
  • Support your experience through weekly supervision
  • Create spaces for you to get to know other interns,  fellows and volunteers participating in DCRCC programs
  • Invite and involve you in volunteer socials and events
  • Provide supplemental opportunities to increase knowledge and understanding about sexual violence (webinars, trainings, video screenings, and discussions)

Currently DCRCC does not have any internship positions available. Please check back, or feel free to contact Tina Ureña for further information about other opportunities at Thanks!
