Animal Advocacy Campaign Assistant - PhiladelphiaBookmark This
The Humane League
1601 Walnut St
DescriptionThe Humane League is a 501(c)3 animal advocacy organization that works to protect all animals through public education, campaigns and rescue. We have staffed offices serving the greater metro regions of Philadelphia, Boston, Maryland, New York City, Dallas, and Charlotte and our work for animals extends nationwide. We invest our time, money and energy where they will do the most good for the greatest number of animals. As a result, our primary focus is on farmed animal issues. Farmed animals represent over 98% of the animals used and killed in the United States, and because they are excluded from state anti-cruelty laws they suffer intensely on today's "factory farms."
The Humane League frequently hosts interns for periods of one to six months. Interning with the Humane League is a great way to gain valuable job experience in the non-profit field while at the same time helping to create a more compassionate world for animals.
All interns must be available for at least one month, 15 hours a week for part-time interns, and up to 40 hours a week for full-time. All internships are unpaid.
ResponsibilitiesAs an intern, you will be involved in a wide variety of projects, including:
Networking with major players in the animal protection movement
-Raising awareness by leafleting and tabling at festivals and concert venues
-Helping us prepare TV programming
-Distributing animal advocacy magazines around the city
-Securing media coverage
-Working with restaurants and cafes to implement new vegan items on the menu
