Description

The Animal Rights Coalition is the oldest and most successful animal rights organization in Minnesota, with over three decades of helping animals. ARC's membership has grown significantly over the years and it is a locally and nationally recognized voice for animal rights.

We focus on spreading the word about compassionate living. From helping people transition to a plant-based diet to publicizing the abuse of animals in laboratories to educating the public about the exploitation of animals used in entertainment, ARC’s unique and innovative education and outreach programs reach thousands of people every year.

ARC has remained a grass-roots group because we believe that real and lasting change for animals will happen and needs to happen at the grass-roots level; that is, it's going to take a critical mass of people at the local level to reach a tipping point in our culture's treatment of animals, not policies created and enforced by people higher up in traditional power structures. We believe our members and volunteers are the animals' real heroes and the people who will move our society toward justice for all species.

This internship entails working at ARC's location on 48th Street in Minneapolis Wednesday, Thursday, and Fridays, 1-6 PM. Interns will need (and also learn) skills of working with others, but also a strong ability to work independently and make judgements. Interns will help with ARC events and outreach, from running a book club to setting up a date for leafleting to helping with preparing donated furs for the Cuddle Coats program. This internship is also ideal for those who are creative, as interns will be asked to contribute their own ideas and even plan events.

Responsibilities

Interns will be expected to come prepared and ready to work 1-6 PM on Wednesday, Thursdays, and Fridays during the internship. Work assignments will often vary day-to-day, and interns should be flexible doing a number of different tasks. Interns will also be expected to attend some events other than their regular hours.
