Description of the Internship:
There are two different positions, and interns can select one, or combine the two: 1. Direct care- Working directly with people with special needs in a hands-on role. The specific projects can include working with the participants in athletics, arts & crafts, and assisting in many other activities, depending on the needs of the specific program and age of the participants (our programs serve special needs citizens of all ages). 2. Resource development- Working with the Resource Development Department as an intern. Tasks include helping to build a database of contacts, participate in planning of special events and campaigns, attending fundraising functions and workshops, helping to update the website, conduct research on grants and drafting letters of inquiry. This could also include creative projects such as web design, media development and more depending on the interest of the intern. The organization is happy to think out of the box.
