Description

Heartsent Adoptions, Inc. is a medium sized non-profit international and domestic adoption agency. We believe in finding families for children in need, and we guide adopting families through every step of the process, from initial sign-up to well beyond the day they bring their child home.

Since we are a small office, we appreciate the opportunity to work with interns who help maintain the general flow of the office and assist the staff on various projects. We are looking for intelligent, motivated, and hard-working individuals who will do just that!

**What you will gain!**
As an Intern at Heartsent Adoptions, you will gain experience working in a small, non-profit office. You will learn the ins and outs of the world of adoption as you work hand-in-hand with our program directors on a daily basis. In addition to the daily office duties, you will have the opportunity to observe meetings with Heartsent families at all stages of the adoption process, allowing you to see everything that goes into the process of adopting a child.

**Need class credit?**
Heartsent is happy to supervise students who need volunteer hours for a class. We provide time sheets for internship hours, and can provide supervision and periodic reviews, as requested. Heartsent employees with Bachelor's degrees will supervise interns, as well as our Executive Director, who has a Master's degree and a license in Marriage & Family Therapy.

GENERAL RESPONSIBILITIES
The Adoption Intern is responsible for maintaining the general flow of the office and assisting the staff on various projects. You will be responsible for creating and updating client binders, keeping the office supplied with materials, assisting with copying documents that are vital to our adoptive families, helping maintain a filing system, and assisting adoptive families by speaking with them on the phone.

TO APPLY
The Adoption Intern is a part-time internship located in our Orinda, CA office. While this position is unpaid, you may receive school credit if desired. Some paid internships are available from time to time.
