Full Circle Adoption Agency (Northampton, MA)

NOTE: CareerConnect login required to view this full listing.

Full Circle Adoption Agency is looking for an intern to join our fast-paced, energetic, and growing office. Full Circle is a fully Hague accredited and licensed domestic and international adoption agency (meaning we handle anything from domestic infant adoption to international adoption from orphanages and the adoption of relatives from other countries). Though we are licensed in Massachusetts and Maine, we also work with both expectant parents and prospective adoptive families nationwide.

As an intern at Full Circle, you will learn the basics of the law and best practices in adoption, have a sense of what it might look like to work for a nonprofit, and generally gain some great office work experience. All interns must understand and commit to the highest degree of confidentiality and professionalism. Past interns have assisted with creating conference presentations/co-presenting at major adoption conferences, completing initial drafts of useful adoption documents, editing and filing adoptive parent documents, creating marketing and fundraising content for our agency, and managing the agency social media accounts, along with gaining knowledge about the day to day work of an adoption agency.

We’re open to any majors (from public health, psychology, or social work, to communications, English, pre-law, computer science, or graphic design), as our past interns have varied and we’ve found everyone’s different skills are helpful in our work environment. Despite your major, applicants should be very organized, detail-oriented, self-starters, who are well-written and are articulate about what skills you can bring to our agency and what you’d like to learn from interning with us.

This internship position is part-time and unpaid. The internship may, however, be offered in exchange for college credit, but you must make arrangements with the UMass internship office in order to qualify.
