At The Waterfront Project, we are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of individuals and families in Northern New Jersey.

Internship Opportunities

Welcome and thank you for your interest in The Waterfront Project Intern Program. The Student Intern Program provides college students with field experience in courses that they are taking for credit toward a diploma or degree in social work or in a related field (e.g., psychology) or in a field related to management support services (e.g., information systems, business management, computer technology, human resources, legal). It is a great opportunity to gain real-world experience in your field of study.  Student interns may provide many direct and indirect services in our Jersey City locations.

The Waterfront Project partners with universities, community colleges, and trade schools to help students gain valuable learning experiences while earning undergraduate, masters, and trade degrees in a related field. Internship opportunities are usually available throughout the year in multiple disciplines. Internship positions are considered on an ongoing basis and interested individuals are encouraged to reach out via the contact info below.

Internships at The Waterfront Project offer valuable hands-on experience for students and recent graduates looking to gain insight into the legal and housing fields. We provide a dynamic learning environment where interns can contribute to our mission while developing essential skills.
