Student Work Placements & Internships

NOTE: All student placement opportunities for September 2021 to April 2022 have been filled. Please check back in mid 2022 for new opportunities.

North York Women’s Centre is committed to providing students with meaningful, engaging and experiential learning opportunities and a practicum experience where they can gain skills in a women-led, women-focused non-profit setting. (NYWC strives to be accessible to all woman-identifying and non-binary people.)

Through student work placements and internships, NYWC provides training, supervision, guidance and evaluation to students to ensure a successful experience, benefiting those students as well as our clients and community. Students apply knowledge gained in the classroom to our workplace, thereby contributing to the goals of our organization.
