Volunteer Opportunities

AllenForce offers a unique opportunity for individuals who strive to connect with and serve the community alongside and for veterans. By serving veterans of all eras, all branches, and all ability levels, AllenForce provides experience to not only serve veterans but to serve alongside them and their families. In addition to volunteer experience, we also provide educational opportunities. Through internships and fellowships, we partner with community colleges for Social Work student field work hours, real-life work experience for Fellows of the Mission Continues Program, interns from Therapeutic Recreation curriculums, and more. Check out our current opportunities below!

Internship Opportunities

AllenForce works with several organizations to provide students and fellows much needed hours of experience in their educational field. Our interns and fellows are able to explore their future career prospects while serving this nation’s Veterans.

AllenForce interns and fellows are welcome in all areas of the organization. We have opportunities from management and program development to multimedia design and upkeep. Our interns and fellows frequently are involved in critical projects and gain a unique perspective in the daily management of a small non-profit.
