Each summer, Black Spectrum offers a limited number of competitive internship opportunities, and both semester and summer internships are quite competitive.

While all internships are unpaid, they provide a unique opportunity to work in a microcredit program and be closely involved with all aspects of the organization. Hours and schedule are flexible depending on the intern's schedule, and internships can be used for college credit. Additionally, internships can sometimes be customized depending on the skills of individual applicants.
