RMM strives to provide college internships that are unique, educational, and meaningful to the work at hand. Interns come from around the country, and occasionally around the world. Your major doesn't matter, what matters is that you possess a commitment to justice and are looking for a challenge.
We are currently accepting college interns in the Poughkeepsie and Long Island offices. Please see attachment for more details on the upcoming semester. We are willing to work with institutional requirements for credit. We have been known to help interns create their own position, and in doing so shape the skills they learn.
The full-time summer internships help make programming happen during the busy months when schools are out, Albany is in session, and harvest season is beginning. Whether you are interested in legislative organizing or popular education, there are positions available. We treat summer college interns as part of the staff and guarantee support throughout the summer.

RMM also provides a limited number of Fellowships to recent college graduates looking for grassroots experience. Fellowships are full-time and generally range from 6-months to 1-year. Typically, Fellowships have arisen from a specific source of funding such as a grant or large donation RMM has received to complete a project, a fellowship from the graduate's academic institution, or mission funding from a faith group.
Currently, RMM partners with Brethren Volunteer Services. BVS is unique because they offer a wide-range of experiences for people of Christian faith, and because they have three cycles of orientations a year. For more information on how to apply to become a BVS Fellow with RMM, visit the BVS website, or contact us.
