Summer Climate Justice Fellow at 350 Vermont – You can pursue your own organizing work while gaining experience working with the team of a grassroots climate justice non-profit organization. Generally your time will be split between supporting 350VT’s mission, and (if your fellowship is more than 20 hours/week) working on an independent organizing project or related organizing work with another group.
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.
To learn more about the Internship, visit our website or email firstname.lastname@example.org and Danielle Hendrix, Internship Director, will contact you.
For students interested in leading a business, non-profit, or other organization, or in management consulting as a career, this internship provides an in-depth hands-on experience working on key strategic management issues for a local enterprise.
Professor of the Practice Ami Biswas will be your mentor and facilitator during the summer. You will apply to 1 of the 3 choices of projects. Interns will participate in a short orientation in late April on campus and should expect to spend 30 hours per week from early June to late July on this internship, primarily working on their projects, but also including a weekly review session with the other interns.
Interns will receive guidance and mentoring from clients and an experienced management & strategy consultant. Interns will receive a stipend of $3,000 and on campus housing is available.
Rising sophomores and juniors are encouraged to apply.
