Becoming a Reading to Kids Intern or Office Volunteer
August 1, 2005
Reading to Kids has internship opportunities!
We are looking for several college students to intern at the office
(part time and full time positions are available). Interns should be available
to work a minimum of 4 hours per week in the office.
In addition, if you are a volunteer (age 17 and up) seeking an ongoing opportunity to
help out with Reading to Kids, we would love to have you volunteer in our
office in West Los Angeles. We are seeking part-time volunteers to help with
administrative duties for 2-20 hours per week. Please contact Jessica
Tritsch at (310) 479-7455 if you are interested in learning more about how you can
will support the day-to-day operation 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: grant-writing,
program evaluation, volunteer coordination, community and school relations, and
Interns will liaise 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 FrontPage is a plus.
The internship is unpaid, but interns may be able to obtain work-study funding,
grants for participation, or course credit.
