Are you part of a fossil fuel divestment or prison divestment campaign?  Working on a project for your university to invest more responsibly?

The Responsible Endowments Coalition is looking for a part-time Organizing Intern to join us this spring!  The Intern will work 10-15 hours each week from early February through mid-May from our office in downtown Brooklyn, with flexibility around start and end dates, as well as the option of working a portion of the weekly hours remotely.  Intern duties will include:

  • Outreach to students and allies

  • Contributing to the development of national organizing strategies, especially around fossil fuel reinvestment and prison divestment

  • Assistance with fundraising, including crowdsourcing, mailings, and grant editing/writing

  • Online organizing including website and social media maintenance

  • Endowment research

  • Generating organizing resources like handouts and newsletters

  • Internal record keeping and databasing

  • Coordination and support of conferences and events

We are looking for a current college student or recent college grad. Preference will be given to applicants organizing a divestment or responsible investment campaign, though all are encouraged to apply.

The Responsible Endowments Coalition is an equal opportunity employer with a commitment to engaging the skills and leadership of people of color, working-class and low-income persons, LGBTQ persons, differently-abled people, and other people from diverse backgrounds. People from these and other traditionally marginalized backgrounds and communities are strongly encouraged to apply to all jobs and internships.

The intern must be based in NYC. This position will be paid at $10/hour.

Applications will be accepted until January 23rd, or until the position is filled.  Please submit a cover letter and resume to organize@endowmentethics.org, with the subject “Spring Internship Application”.  Any questions can also be directed to Lauren or Ian at organize@endowmentethics.org.
