Volunteer and Internships

Volunteer Opportunities

Make a difference!  Help New Yorkers struggling with student loan debt regain financial health.

EDCAP offers volunteers a meaningful opportunity to assist individuals who may be struggling with student loan debt. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to advise consumers on:

    • Student loan repayment options
    • Public Service Loan Forgiveness and discharge programs
    • How to prevent or get out of student loan default
    • Stopping wage garnishments and social security offsets, and more!

We are seeking volunteers to commit at least eight hours per week to this challenging and important program on a long-term basis. For more information, please contact edcap@cssny.org. Help us be part of the solution!

Internships

EDCAP hosts undergraduate, graduate, and legal interns throughout the academic year and the summer. All internships are unpaid, but EDCAP is able to work with students seeking academic credit.

This internship is a hands-on opportunity for students to gain exposure to student loan system and policy and work with others to advocate on behalf of consumers. Intern duties may include conducting legal research, filing complaints, handling direct client service work, and drafting consumer-facing know-your-rights materials.

To apply, submit a cover letter, resume, and writing sample to edcap@cssny.org with the subject line “EDCAP Internship”.
