TeenAIDS-PeerCorps (TA-PC) is one of the most respected AIDS prevention non-profits that specifically targets vulnerable teenagers in the U.S. and globally. Founded 20 years ago by a Harvard expert and lecturer, TA-PC is unique because the entire organization, from the very top to its grassroots operations, is run by an all-volunteer staff with a passion for saving young lives. All funds received go directly to efforts educating youth 12 – 22. TeenAIDS is looking for dependable, serious-minded college-age interns for credit or as volunteers, to work part-time on a weekly basis:
Gain valuable experience running the day-to-day operation of a busy non-profit. Duties include managing staff and volunteers, handling educational campaigns using mail and the internet, organizing street and school outreach, contacting youth organizations and donors, as well as other office responsibilities. You will work directly with the Executive Director. This internship is an excellent resume builder and can be presented to your teacher or Internship Office in a way to meet the requirements of your major/study. An active interest in social media (Facebook and Twitter) is needed.
Hours: This position is for the rest of the fall and/or winterl. At least 12-14 hours per week are required in the office (or whatever extra time is required by your school’s internship regulations). While hours can be arranged around school and paid work, your schedule must be regular and consistent with hours made up for absences. Contact us for details.
How to apply
All positions require regularly scheduled hours (12-14 per week) with most time needed in our Norfolk, Virginia headquarters during the office hours of 10 am to 4 pm, Monday – Friday. If your location and schedule do not permit this commitment, please do not apply. We are open throughout the year and only closed for major holidays. Interns for academic credit are desired but we will work with any good young people. You will need to bring your own laptop as we are a modest operation with an international audience. The dress attire is casual. Safe parking is available on the little-used street in a residential area of single family houses near the beach.
If you are interested in making a real difference in the lives of innocent teenagers by helping them to avoid a life-threatening disease, and are willing to put in the necessary time weekly as a volunteer/intern, please contact the Executive Director firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a name and number of a professional or academic reference.
