Summer Organizing Intern Positions
The Responsible Endowments Coalition is looking for two Summer Organizing Interns to join us this summer! This position will be an opportunity for current students or recent grads to build their political analysis through mentorship from REC staff as well as develop their own campaigns and projects. The interns will work 30 hours each week from our office in Downtown Brooklyn, with flexibility to work from home occasionally.
Intern duties will include:
Contribute to the development of national organizing strategies, especially around fossil fuel divestment, reinvestment and prison divestment
Programming/Logistical coordination of RECs organizing programs including: the Summer Organizing Retreat, Prison Divestment Retreat and the Unconference
Outreach to students and allies
Assistance with fundraising, including crowd-sourcing, mailings, and grant editing/writing
Online organizing including website and social media development
Generating organizing resources like zines and handouts
We are looking for college students or recent college grads. Preference will be given to applicants organizing divestment campaigns though all are encouraged to apply.
We are open to Individuals from all regions however the intern must be based in NYC for the duration of the internship. This is a paid internship but we encourage applicants to seek additional funding from their schools. Metro cards may be provided. We will work with applicants to meet your need through a mixture of REC funds and funding from other sources.
Applications will be accepted until May 16th. Please submit a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject “Internship Application”. Any questions can also be directed to Natalie Casal, at email@example.com.
