We engage individuals and organizations in local and statewide collaborations to strengthen the effectiveness of sexual violence education, prevention, and response in Utah. UCASA started in 1996 when people from across the state came together to end sexual assault. We began a partnership with state agencies and service providers that lasts to this day. Together, we support survivors and work to prevent sexual assault in all forms. UCASA is growing! Over the past couple of years, UCASA has faced significant challenges and is in the process of re-imagining our work and our organization. This is an exciting time to be a part of this organization, to be on the ground as we work toward the next amazing chapter of our organization. If you excel in a busy, dynamic and transitioning environment, this could be the place for you!

Hours and Compensation

Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault is not able to provide compensation for intern positions at this time. We understand a lack of compensation limits and unfairly displaces folks who would otherwise be a good fit and are working towards securing funding to provide paid internships in the future. By submitting an application you are consenting to an unpaid internship that can provide compensation in the form of learning opportunities in partnership within a college or university, community building, skills practice, and justice work. Interns are scheduled for Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 semesters, for approximately 10 hours a week. Timing and schedules are flexible and can be discussed upon hire.

UCASA is an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE). If you need assistance or an accommodation during the application process due to disability, it is available upon request. No applicant will be penalized as a result of such a request.

To apply send a resume and cover letter to the Director of Operations, Olyvia Burbidge at olyvia@ucasa.org. Please include three academic goals you would like to achieve during the course of your internship as well as any personal goals and opportunities that interest you.
