Volunteer or Intern With Us

Volunteers and interns play an essential role in supporting the work we do at The Fortune Society. By donating their valuable time and expertise, volunteers aid our staff in myriad ways, including tutoring, mentoring, resume preparation, mock interviewing, and special projects. We are particularly glad to welcome formerly incarcerated individuals interested in giving back to their communities through service with The Fortune Society.

“Interning at Fortune is wonderful. I’m gaining real-life work experience in a nurturing environment and making a huge difference in people’s lives. I would never have it any other way.”
- Hannah Kavanagh Communications and Journalism Intern
