Shema Kolainu- Hear Our Voices School and Center for Children with Autism is looking for an intern to work as a member of their blogging staff.

This is a great opportunity for a student currently looking for an easy and flexible internship to add to their resume. We’re open to working with students or recent graduates who are interested in communications, media, public relationships, education, autism, social work, brain sciences, disabilities services, etc.
