Cooperative Internship Network - Now Accepting Host Applications

NASCO's Cooperative Internship Network is officially accepting host applications for 2016 internship positions, due by Sunday, February 28th! Whatever the size or type of your organization, we encourage you to take part in this opportunity to expand your support team.

The NASCO Cooperative Internship Network allows cooperatives and other organizations to directly market internships to cooperative youth through NASCO's membership and networks without the hassle of a traditional intern hiring process.

It's only been a month since launching this initiative and already hundreds have signed up to take part and 12 official teach-ins are in the works with many more to come.
