DescriptionMake-A-Wish® Sacramento & NE CA seeks to provide interns with a diverse experience, performing various duties that range from data entry, filing, and phone calling to seeking donations and planning entire wish experiences.
Wish-Granting interns have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children who have often had to undergo painful or traumatic experiences that no child should have to experience. Most of our work is done from our offices; on occasion, we interact in person with the families we serve. We also process a good deal of paperwork and must therefore be attentive to detail and proper documentation.
To apply, please fill out the application located at http://necannv.wish.org/about-us/employment-and-internships/employment-and-internships, and send your application, resume, and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
