Be an Intern at The CSPH!

Are you an up & coming sexuality professional looking to grow your skills? Would you like more experience in the Non-Profit Sector? Do you want to learn more about what it means to be a sex positive, pleasure inclusive advocate for health?

We have an internship for you!

The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health welcomes applicants who aspire to enter into the field of sexuality. The Internship Program is a great educational experience for anyone interested in sex education, web management, marketing, social media, event-planning, public health, research, non-profit organizations, grant writing, and/or connecting with an amazing, diverse community of sex-positive people from all walks of life.

The CSPH is a place for interns to employ skills that they already have while increasing their knowledge about the field of sexuality, and building new skills. Applicants should have basic knowledge or working experience of the intern position they apply for.

*Please note that even though we are working hard as an organization to obtain funding for our Internship Program, all internship positions are currently unpaid. For more information on the benefits of our program, check out the Benefits! section below!
