Description

Want to get involved with Imerman Angels?

Our Mission:
To provide personalized peer connections that enable one-on-one support among cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers.

Imerman Angels 1-on-1 cancer support carefully matches a person touched by cancer with someone who has fought and survived the same type of cancer (a Mentor Angel). It is this relationship that makes all the difference to a cancer fighter- to talk with someone who has gone through the same surgery, struggled through the same chemotherapy and faced the same fears; someone who is uniquely familiar with your challenge and ready to offer an empathetic ear.

Internship Summary:
This is an opportunity for someone looking to help shape the Outreach program for a growing non-profit while working with a close-knit team. To support our mission, Imerman Angels holds two types of monthly events: Imerman Angels Socials and Lunch & Learns. We have a small budget and obtaining sponsor donations for these events makes a huge impact to our organization.

You will help us obtain in-kind donations (typically healthy snacks or beverages) to accommodate our guests as we work together to ensure no one faces cancer on their own. Occasionally some assistance may be required to solicit in-kind donations for some of our additional events as well, on an as-needed basis.

While we have a process and communication materials in place for you to start with, we value someone who will take the initiative to make recommendations and implement improvements. You will receive hands-on training as well as mentoring from our staff. You will learn a ton and help us create meaningful experiences!
