Want to Intern in our office? Our interns and volunteers are our heroes!
Our office is located in San Diego, CA and all volunteer positions or internships are part time, unpaid, and require coming into the office, so it’s necessary to already live in San Diego. Due to San Diego’s high cost of living, we don’t encourage folks to move here specifically for these internships. We can’t provide housing or transportation assistance, and as mentioned, they’re all unpaid. If you’re located in San Diego and want to help out, here are some frequent positions for interns and volunteers:
Administrative Assistant: probably the most important and needed position! We go through piles of tasks in the day to day – and it takes a lot to keep up! This may be helping with communications, or filing paperwork, or writing thank you notes for donations, or any number or projects. We keep it fun – don’t worry!
Grant writing intern: this is also hugely important. It involves keeping our project and financial info up to date and then researching and applying for grants which we would qualify for, and also, reporting for grants we already received. This position is pretty interesting because folks get to learn a lot about our different international projects.
Orders/Shipping team: with our online website and book orders, we need folks to help us package and ship out items purchased, write thank you cards, or order new materials. We also love for you to help us dream up new items to offer!
Graphic Design intern: we often need help with design projects. Want to put your skills to use? Help us look good!
Video Intern: we love to share stories about our projects and ways to help. If you’re skilled in editing videos, we need your help!
Social Media Intern: Social Media is a great way to keep folks updated on what projects we’re doing and how to help. But it’s also time-consuming! If you’re a social media guru and want to help us out – let us know!
