Build Your Leadership Skills in the Nonprofit & Philanthropic Sector in CO

The El Pomar Internship is a unique summer program that introduces continuing undergraduate students to the nonprofit sector and provides an opportunity to develop professional interests and skills. Interns work with and are mentored by leaders in philanthropy. They serve an important role by providing administrative support for the Foundation’s offices. Interns receive assignments based upon the Foundation’s needs and, to the extent possible, the Interns’ interests. Interns participate in a weekly professional development series which provides insight into and practice in a professional atmosphere. Examples of past courses include investments, grant making, networking, public speaking and career planning. Each Intern fulfills an individual role but also receives meaningful interaction with the Intern class. While each Intern has a distinct learning experience, all have the opportunity to learn concepts through hands-on practice and receive the support and guidance to develop professionally. Applicants should demonstrate strong professional skills, skills in verbal and written communication, organization and time management skills, and a willingness to learn.

Spend Winter Term Engaged in International Sustainable Development

The Andean Alliance for Sustainable Development has re-posted their winter term internship opportunity with a deadline of November 25th. 

Students, you may apply for Cross-cultural Community Service Grants funding through the Center for Community Engagement, which has a deadline of December 2nd.  CCE has generously offered to support AASD applications, but students will need to apply individually by the deadline, as there is not a pre-set amount of funding dedicated for AASD participants only as we have had in place for past j term cohorts.  It is the responsibility of the student to secure their own funding as needed, secure the position with AASD, apply for winter term credit, and to find a faculty sponsor by December 2.

This is a tall order, but if you happened to have seen the recent screening of The Potato King documentary last week, which included utterly beautiful footage of the Peruvian landscape where the Andean Alliance for Sustainable Development works, you might be motivated to get this done!  This virtual internship with them won’t be like a visit, but it will help you learn about the culture and resources of Peru.  The deadline for applications to do the internship is November 25.

The Winter Term 2021 SBEC Climate Action Intern will support the SBEC in building the foundation of information that South Burlington requires to define specific goals and to evaluate the progress and effectiveness of the actions the city is undertaking to address its climate goals. As an intern you will tap into these skills: data & analytics, finance, operations / production, writing / editing and communications. During the project, you will work with a team of stakeholders, not limited to: city staff, school staff, utility representatives from Vermont Gas, Green Mountain Power, and Efficiency Vermont, fuel dealers, staff from the CCRPC (Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission), state employees, people from state and national organizations that specialize in emissions inventories, members of other energy committees, and university researchers.
