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. Our internship program is an educational experience designed for folks who are interested in sexuality education, web management and design, social media content development, event planning and marketing, public health, sexuality research, non-profit organizations, grant writing, and/or connecting with a supportive, talented, diverse community of sex-positive people from all walks of life.

Applicants should have basic knowledge or working experience of the intern position they apply for.
