Reading to Kids interns support the day-to-day operations of the office, in addition to taking on individual, long term projects. Interns should expect to learn the ins and outs of running a small non-profit, including but not limited to: marketing, grant-writing, volunteer recruitment and coordination, community and school relations, program evaluation, and administrative operations.
Interns will communicate with our participating schools and community partners, prepare grants for major local and national foundations, prepare and analyze data from evaluation surveys, assist in the preparation for each month’s reading clubs, and enjoy a relaxed and fun working environment.
It is Reading to Kids‘ hope that interns emerge from this experience with a sense of community organizing at its best and with a strong educational and employment experience that will serve them in years to come. This is a great opportunity for students interested in a career in the nonprofit sector.
We are seeking motivated and mature candidates with outstanding oral and written communication skills, office experience, enthusiasm for non-profit work, and strong organizational skills. Experience with Microsoft Word, Excel, and HTML is a plus. The internship is unpaid, but interns may be able to obtain work-study.
