Calling all future leaders in the nonprofit field

Know any impressive undergraduates, graduate students, or recent college graduates with an interest in the nonprofit field? Encourage them to apply for our summer internship program. We place some of the area’s best students at local nonprofit organizations for a paid 11-week experience. 

What will the interns do?

They won’t be sitting around making copies and filing papers. Last summer, our interns got the chance to be involved in major programs at their organizations. Planning fundraisers, putting on a neighborhood fesitval – it’s all in a day’s work for these interns. 

Who are we looking for?

  • An undergraduate or graduate student in good standing or a recent graduate of a local accredited college or university who resides in the Greater Cleveland area such as Lake, Geauga, and Cuyahoga counties.
  • Strong academic record (3.0 gpa or above).
  • Strong research, computer, and verbal and written communication skills.
  • Interest in the nonprofit or public sector.

The application deadline is February 6, 2009.  The application form and the list of host site organizations can also be accessed through our website. 

Personal interviews with select applicants will be conducted by early March. Interns will be notified of their acceptance into the program on or around April 1. The internship program begins on June 1, 2009 and ends August 14, 2009.
