Available Positions

Intern with Seven Directions

Opportunities for internships are available for any academic term(s). To assure that the intern maximizes their experience, we prefer to have students commit a minimum of 10 hours a week for a minimum of 8 weeks, and for those students visiting short-term from another institution, full-time, if possible. Previous internships have been arranged in collaboration with students' universities to fulfill practicum credits. If you are interested in interning please email Leo Egashira at seattleo@uw.edu. At this time, internships are unpaid.
