Non-profit Executive Operations Management & Community Development Internship

Description

Friends of Refugees is a non-profit organization that exists to empower refugees through opportunities that provide for their well-being, education, and employment. We seek to empower refugees in many unique ways–teaching English, engaging children & students, managing a community garden complex, running an 8 week summer camp, operating an Internet café, offering job placement services, and supporting expectant refugee moms, just to name a few! We connect some 1,500 volunteers a year with over 2,000 refugees, and hope to more than double that in the next few years.

Have you thought about what it takes to manage and grow a non-profit? We are seeking an intern to work alongside our Executive Director. You will be mentored as you assist in taking ideas from beginning to end. You will provide administrative support, including drafting communications, solving unexpected problems, participating in board and administrative meetings, and interfacing with our different programs. This internship will be very fast-paced and demand high quality work.

Ten to twenty hours a week are requested. Applicants are considered year round, but they must be available for at least 4 months.
