Non-Clinical Internships

Mozaic Center for Elder Abuse Prevention Internship Opportunities


Mozaic Center for Elder Abuse Prevention is a grant-funded program of Mozaic Senior Life that opened in September 2007 to assist victims and reduce the prevalence of elder abuse. The Center seeks unpaid interns to contribute to community outreach and education activities of the Center and with the objective of receiving experience, education, and mentorship towards professional goals. 


Projects of interest will be developed jointly between the intern and Program Director. Interns will be guided to research and produce an outreach plan for a target population, and tailor educational materials and resources of the Center to fulfill the outlined plan. This is a great opportunity to learn about a growing segment of society and an expanding field, contributing to the well-being of older adults in our community, as well as a great opportunity for those interested in working in the non-profit sector.



Internships start and end dates will correspond to academic or related educational activity calendar. Intern schedule must include a minimum of 8 hours and no more than 40 hours per week during day-time business hours. We anticipate projects to be 8-12 weeks in length.



Bachelor or Masters level candidates, individuals seeking advanced licensure or transitioning to second career in related programming (Ex. Encore program). Ideal for those with interest in serving older adults, long-term care services and community-based supports, elder abuse and/or domestic violence. Good research, writing, editing, and communication skills. 



Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.  Please submit cover letter highlighting your areas of interest, resume, and a brief writing sample. To apply or for more information contact us at
