Description

It’s Wednesday afternoon and you’re greeted with virtual high-fives. Once again, you came to the rescue; you are now a bonafied public relations superhero-in-training. We have to warn you though, your typical day (Typical? What’s typical in the world of non-profit communications?) may sound a little more like this: you’ll likely crave a coffee drip, but it won’t be possible because it’ll hinder your movements as you race from one place to another. And the avid scrolling on your smartphone isn’t an intense game of Candy Crush; you’re monitoring our social media activity.

Ready to see what’s behind door number one?

We’re looking for an intern interested in learning all aspects of non-profit communications, from top to bottom. It's essential that you have excellent communication skills, demonstrate creativity and understand the importance of attending to the mere details.
