TCC Internships

Operations and Administrative Interns

Triangle Community Center (TCC) encourages high school and college volunteers to apply for an internship at its offices in Norwalk. Internships at TCC are unpaid. Interns will work closely with TCC staff, working on TCC operations, event planning, website management, communications, and office management.
