Academy of Whole Learning (AOWL) is looking for motivated interns to join us to support the ongoing needs of our innovative projects. Now in its 17th year, AOWL is a National School of Excellence and the only private school in the Twin Cities specializing in autism education. We exist to create a world where students can belong and succeed. Our mission is to provide personalized learning paths integrating academic, social and life skills for students with autism spectrum disorder and related learning differences. With 40 full-time employees, we provide cutting-edge autism education and transformative community resources.

We are seeking a diverse pool of interns based on a combination of demonstrated academic performance, leadership, and career aspirations in the field of education, business/marketing and/or social services. Interns are assigned to a member of our leadership team for overall project direction. Working under the direct supervision of credentialed staff members, interns will participate in nearly every aspect of the organization. This internship will play an integral role in the daily activities of the organization as well as explore the inner workings of running a private school.
