DescriptionToms River Moving Forward is a community organization focusing on creating more healthy, sustainable, and regenerative communities. We host cleanups, build and maintain community gardens, host workshops/events, and are looking to expand even further. Priorities for the fall include finishing/processing non-profit registration paperwork, establishing additional community bonds, collecting community garden donations, acquiring new garden locations, outreaching to school volunteer groups, food forest planning, and setting up a permaculture course for the Spring/Summer of 2017.
Interns we are seeking:
Administration: 1-2 Interns are needed ASAP to help with filing paperwork (especially non-profit registration), organizing events, updating the website, responding to emails, searching/applying for grants, etc. There is an endless supply of work to be done here.
Community Relations: 1-2 interns needed to work closely with TRMF leaders to outreach to/maintain contact with new/current/previous volunteers, increase social media presence, reach out to schools/hospitals/etc for potential partnerships, and so on.
A background/familiarity with environmental issues, community organizing, non-profit registration, grant-writing, and/or permaculture is preferred but absolutely not required. This posting is for unpaid internships, however all interns will be given training in mushroom cultivation, permaculture, organic gardening, etc for free. All workshop and event fees will be waived, as well as the permaculture course fee. There is potential for this to become a paid position as we advance further.
Finally, these internships allow for a lot of flexibility: You set your schedule. We will meet with intern applicants in person first to ensure you are a good fit, from there weekly correspondence can be done primarily over internet/phone if desired.
- Respond to inquiries made to TRMF email/website
- Help create and maintain cleanups and events schedule
- Work with TRMF leader(s) to address and file paperwork as necessary
- Search for grants
- Keep website up to date (workshops, events, etc)
- Help find and organize locations for events, gatherings, etc
- Researching as needed
- Assisting in setting up new projects
- Maintain volunteer email list
- Contacting schools, churches, hospitals, etc for volunteers/partnership projects
- Uploading photos and assisting in public documentation
- Social media outreach
You do not need to be able to take on all tasks beneath either position. You will need to be consistent with communication between TRMF organizers, and set a time weekly to go over updates on both ends, either by internet/phone or in person.
RequirementsIt is absolutely necessary for interns to be able to maintain regular communication with TRMF leaders so we can all work as efficiently as possible. This means being in touch at least once a week for updates via email or phone to give and receive updates/tasks.
