Description

We are a successful and fast-growing NYC-based STEM education program that is currently accepting internship applications for a central non-profit management role in helping grow our non-profit sister organization, Student Union. We are looking for a self-starter who will take a leadership role in shaping our non-profit’s mission, organizational structure, advisory board, and management team. This is an opportunity for you to apply your non-profit management coursework and work experience toward the founding and growth of a ground-breaking program. Student Union will act in much the same capacity as MakerState, a for-profit that serves schools and families with STEM programming for students. Student Union will serve kids-in-need with the same quality programming but with the funding support of foundations, corporate supporters, and government grants. Your hands-on research, logistics, and leadership role will be pivotal in expanding our market reach to include a much more diverse and needs-drive client base through operations planning and marketing, and hands-on outreach such as client meetings, promotional events, and social media marketing and advertising. In the process you will learn how a successful non-profit runs from the inside out, and be part of transforming education for all children and schools.
