Members of the O&P Community,
Looking to the fall academic semester, OPAF is seeking several
creative and team-minded young people -- undergraduates, recent
graduates, graduate students, and even exceptional high school
seniors -- who wish to learn about the nonprofit sector, nonprofit
programs for people with physical disabilities, and public service in
the name of O&P.
OPAF interns participate directly in our operations, learning first-
hand about program design, qualitative and quantitative research,
fund development, and special events management. In addition to
offering a dynamic learning environment at the heart of the national
nonprofit sector, OPAF provides interns with a very modest stipend as
well as assistance in arranging academic credit.
During the past year, the OPAF Internship Program has involved six
undergraduates and recent graduates, and one of our interns has even
gone on to apply to several O&P programs, hoping that she will be
able to continue her education on this path.
Complete details of the OPAF Internship Program are available at
Thank you very much for passing this notice to friends, colleagues,
and young people who might be interested. We appreciate it
