Are you passionate about the well-being of kids? Do you enjoy working in a team-oriented and collaborative environment? Do people frequently describe you as a "strong communicator," "people person" or "problem solver"?

Come play with us!

KaBOOM! is the national non-profit dedicated to bringing balanced and active play into the daily lives of all kids, particularly those growing up in poverty in America. We create great places to play, inspire communities to promote and support play, and work to drive the national discussion about the importance of play in fostering healthy lives and communities.

The KaBOOM! Summer Internship Program offers a wide variety of Internships that are guaranteed to excite and intrigue you. Though the Internships are housed in different teams across the organization, there are many opportunities throughout the summer to work and play together as an Internship Cohort, and to explore other areas of interest to you during your time with us. This comprehensive program ensures that you not only hone the skills you seek to develop, but helps you make connections with your fellow Interns and colleagues that can last a lifetime.
