Always be on the alert for potentially fraudulent job postings online - never send money to a potential employer.
DescriptionTalking Arts Foundation is an artists-led 501c3 whose mission is to foster cross-cultural communication through the development and implementation of music and art education programs in communities where marginalized children, young adults and senior citizens are underrepresented due to their socioeconomic status.
This particular Internship is open to any College/University student within the Tri-State area and involves writing grant proposals in order to keep The T.A.F. properly funded. Along with that, a grant writer may also be asked to assist with fundraising events and other projects within our research division.
Innovative and successful grant writers may be asked to take on a more important role in the corporation and, in the future, may be offered a permanent position.
