New Position: Organizing Intern for Fall 2013

Check out “Six Reasons Why You Should Apply To REC’s NYC Internships” to learn more about what working with us is like!

Are you working on a campaign for divestment (fossil fuels, prisons, some other issue)?  Community investment?  Engaging with shareholders? Are you hoping to join with 10,000 youth at PowerShift this fall?

The Responsible Endowments Coalition is looking for an Organizing Intern to join us this fall!  Intern duties will include:

  • Outreach to students and allies

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

  • Assistance with fundraising, including crowd-sourcing and grant editing/writing

  • Online organizing including website and social media maintenance

  • Generating organizing resources like handouts and newsletters

  • Internal record keeping

  • Workshop development, logistics coordination, and outreach for PowerShift 2013


We are looking for a college student who is taking time off or recent college grad to intern with us full-time.   Preference will be given to applicants with experience on a divestment or responsible investment campaign, though it is not a requirement to apply for the position.

Given our commitment to a diverse student leadership, we strongly encourage people of color, women, working-class, LGBTQ, gender non-conforming, and differently-abled people to apply.

The internship will be based out of our office in Downtown Brooklyn, but will involve travel to PowerShift in October. This position will be stipended.

Applications will be accepted until August 2, or until the position is filled.  Please submit a cover letter and resume to organize@endowmentethics.org to be considered for the internship.  Any questions can also be directed to Lauren and Rose, at organize@endowmentethics.org.
