Volunteering & Interning
Jump to Section:
MassKids, which directs the Enough Abuse Campaign, is a small organization with a big mission. We believe everyone can play a role in preventing child sexual abuse. To help reach our goals faster and for more children, we collaborate with a range of interns and volunteers that contribute their time and talents to help support our work.
Meet some of our past volunteers:
- Jen, Michaela, Ramsha and Jennifer formed a Virtual Survey Team that developed a tool to gather data from the states about their child sexual abuse prevention laws, and Jen and Ramsha helped us prepare the state legislation summaries in our report, A Call to Action for Policymakers and Advocates: Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Legislation in the States.
- Tufts “180° Consulting” Team members Katrina, Angel, David, Deema, Mallory, Matthew, Simran and Paul organized “Pledge to Prevent™ Day” on campus and developed the resource guide, “Engaging College Students in the Movement to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse: How to Organize Pledge to Prevent™ Day on Your Campus.”
- MIT Board Fellows Emma and Ruchie served on our Long-Range Planning Committee.
Meet some of our past interns:

If you are interested in Interning with Enough Abuse, please email your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. An internship with the Enough Abuse Campaign is flexible and offers undergraduate or graduate students an opportunity to be creative and think outside-the-box to help further our prevention goals. Internships are currently being held remotely and consist of 5-10 hours per week, depending on the intern’s availability and our needs.
If you are interested in Volunteering, please email email@example.com or give us a call at 617-742-8555 and let us know how your skills and interests can help the cause of child sexual abuse prevention.
Whether you identify as a victim, survivor, or as someone working through the trauma of sexual abuse, know that you are not alone, you are not to blame for what happened, and support is available to help you on your journey to healing.
