DescriptionCity Year New York Internship Program
City Year is a national non-profit organization that partners with the New York public schools to ensure that students will graduate from high school in neighborhoods where one out of every two students is at risk for dropping out. City Year employs Corps Members (AmeriCorps Members are 17-24 year old high school graduates, college students and college graduates) who commit a year of their lives to serve full-time in public schools. The teams provide critical services like tutoring, run after-school programs and serve as role models to make the schools a more engaging place to learn.

City Year New York provides hands-on learning opportunities for undergraduate students interested in non-profit administration careers. Interns will support a variety of projects that help City Year carry out our education mission by assisting in customer service, research, data collection, event execution, and more. Each intern will be matched with a specific department (descriptions below). Additionally, each intern will assist with general office operations, administrative work, event support, and data entry. Internships are typically between 10 and 20 hours per week during business hours (9am-5:30pm, Monday-Friday), and can be flexible with a student's academic calendar and extracurricular commitments. Please note that all internships are office based and interns do not serve in schools.
ResponsibilitiesEVALUATION: Responsibilities include supporting our Evaluation team in spot checking weekly data submissions for accuracy, maintaining our data systems and organizing data from FY13. The intern needs to have excel skills and great attention to detail. Through their work, this intern will gain insight into how a large non-profit organization manages data processes and outcome data. (Fall, Spring, Summer)
This is an unpaid opportunity where interns will learn and develop a variety of highly competitive resume building skills including organization, teamwork, project planning and execution, communication skills, customer service, multi-tasking, and networking. It is up to the applicant to determine whether they are eligible for credit, scholarship, or work-study money from their school. Interns will have the opportunity to participate in Corporate Service Days with our Development team, Lunch and Learn seminars with members of our staff team, and will be paired with a manager who will serve as their mentor throughout the internship. City Year New York interns are required to commit a minimum of 10 hours per week, but many choose to work more!
