Interns may earn up to 40 core hours in each IDP experience area (except for Leadership and Service) for volunteer service in support of a pre-approved charitable organization outside of a recognized work setting or academic requirement.

Community-Based Design Center/Collaborative organizations must apply to NCARB to be recognized for the purpose of IDP credit. Organizations interested in applying to NCARB should contact idp@ncarb.org.

The organization must be pre-approved by NCARB before the experience occurs.
