Community Food & Outreach Center
150 W. Michigan St.
DescriptionThe Community Food and Outreach Center (CFOC) is a 26,000 square foot clinic and counseling center, cost-share grocery and thrift store serving residents of downtown Orlando and beyond. Orlando’s CFOC is a cutting edge not for profit organization focusing on collaborative partnerships with other area non profits, social entrepreneurship and efforts to offer Orlandoans living in poverty a hand up as opposed to hand out. In 2013, the CFOC was a recipient of over $1,500,000 in funding through City and County related Community Development Block grants and private donations allowing us to purchase and expand our facility to over 50,000 square feet.
We are looking for students interested in two or more of the following areas:
Event planning and implementation
Donor stewardship and database management
Social Media Management
Grant writing and management
Volunteer Recruitment, Retention, Recognition and On-site coordination
Social Service Case Management and Education
Retail Services Management
Overall advancement of our organizations mission
This program is open to undergraduate and graduate students in all majors and colleges. Interested students should apply by submitting their resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be contacted about participating in an informational conference call or visiting our campus for an interview. Internship opportunities are available during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.
ResponsibilitiesStudent interns will work in an apprenticeship capacity in one of our departments, represent the organization in the community, work directly with our customers and clients and complete work projects furthering our mission and building your portfolio of experience.
This is a professional internship with a business casual dress code, policies and procedures mirroring those of our professional staff. Students will complete an orientation at the beginning of their semester and also have an opportunity to serve in multiple volunteer roles on campus. Student’s primary work will be in a regular office environment, but travel to local offsite events may be common.
While this is primarily a volunteer internship, we do offer a small stipend of $300 at the end of the semester for any students completing their hours. This is largely a thank you gesture for our students, but it also meets the requirements of most programs that require paid internships.
