RECRUIT internships are designed by and for multiply marginalized students who have struggled to gain internships due to identity, juggling school and jobs, transportation, living in rural areas, caregiving, or any other barrier. 

Since the RECRUIT internship program began in Fall 2020, we have provided training, applied skills development, and 1:1 mentorship to 20 volunteer-based interns. We're so grateful and excited to provide these paid opportunities in the upcoming year!

In their own words...
The RECRUIT Internship improves STEMM students' experiences! Read below to learn how we impact RECRUIT's professional and personal lives:

What has being a RECRUIT meant to you?

Eun (they/them): "The RECRUIT internship is important to me as a psychology major in college and as an opportunity to help others in ways I searched for and failed to find in my own times of need in the past."

Why did you choose the RECRUIT internship?

Leslie (she/her): "I applied to the RECRUIT internship because I really resonated with THRIVE Lifeline’s cause. As a POC and a member of the LGBTQ+ community, it is imperative to address the struggles that others in our community are facing and to give them a safe space. Mental health advocacy is also something that I highly value, and I really liked that THRIVE Lifeline prioritizes the mental health of texters and their crisis responders."

What would you tell potential RECRUIT applicants?

Morgan (she/her): "It allows one to grow as an individual, learn to view diverse challenges and obstacles in a unique way, and most of all, you will create valuable and lasting connections with the other wonderful members of THRIVE."

What is your biggest takeaway as a RECRUIT?

Quinn (he/him): "Being LGBTQ+ and a college student in the midst of COVID-19 has been a very isolating experience. But my internship at THRIVE has shown me that we are never truly alone in this world. I cannot understate the amount of support that I have gotten since I started my internship. I have felt supported at every step of the way. My mentor has been a truly inspirational figure in my life and I'm so grateful for the other leaders at THRIVE who have guided me through tough moments. It's really rewarding to know that you're molding a space where others don't have to fight as hard to stay alive and feel respected."
