An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting.
At OCWCOG, we believe you bring valuable experience to our team. We look to your skills and insight to compliment that which we already have to a project, program, report, etc.

We’ll provide you with valuable experience, which will prepare you for your career after college. You’ll be provided the opportunity to network and build professional relationships with future colleagues in your field. Additionally, you’ll also satisfy your college program requirements in a meaningful, field-based manner.

Most of all, while you’re with us, you’ll be assisting OCWCOG with fulfilling our mission of improving the lives of those living in Benton, Lincoln, and Linn Counties.

OCWCOG internships are generally unpaid, and last between three and six months. Usually, the internships are short-term assignments related to a student’s major or career or interest.
Internships are very similar to fellowships, with a key difference being the length in which the student remains at the OCWCOG. While internships generally last three to six months, fellowships may last between one-two years. Fellowships are generally student-driven, proposed assignments approved by OCWCOG Managers, and carried out with minimal supervision. Additionally, fellowships will normally apply to graduate or post-graduate students.
Absolutely! OCWCOG is open to your ideas and would like to hear from you. Please send your ideas to
