Due to the Pandemic, NAPW is at present a completely remote workforce. This position is normally in-office. If the successful candidate is hired while the staff is still remote, we will work with that candidate to ensure that they have the tools, supplies, and digital on-boarding to be successfully integrated into our remote work environment.

NAPW seeks a talented and highly motivated intern to assist in NAPW’s finance and operations business function. The CUNY Finance & Operations Internship is designed specifically for individuals enrolled in a CUNY school and will offer the individual an opportunity to learn about non-profit management while also gaining broad knowledge about the organization and the framework of reproductive justice. The internship is for individuals who are not in law school and is suitable for undergraduate or graduate students.
