As a Discovery intern, you may work closely with an environmental, social, or political nonprofit agency. Interns may also work in a social services department helping our fellow citizens. Non-profits can be locally focused or have extraordinary global reach.
In recent years, the number of non-profit organizations has proliferated and experts have suggested that these organizations carry increasingly significant influence over policy and business decisions. Wages tend to be below average in the non-profit sector, although top personnel at global organizations now routinely earn six figure salaries or more.
