Become an Intern!

The mission of Affirmations is to provide a welcoming space where people of all sexual orientations, gender identities & expressions, and cultures can find support and unconditional acceptance, and where they can learn, grow, socialize and have fun.

Currently we accept intern applications for both graduate and undergraduate students.
