About the Junior Intern Program:

We are excited to launch our junior internship program in the Summer of 2024. This is an awesome opportunity to get hands on experience with a Richmond-based 501c3 nonprofit that serves over 5,000 children each year in the Greater Richmond region.

Junior interns will play a huge role in our programs this summer. Responsibilities will include helping to fill individual requests and diaper bank orders, manning the donation door, sorting donations, keeping track of inventory, working with volunteers, and helping with social media. Interns will also create a project specifically for the summer, and depending on your session will play a role in the planning, execution, or wrap up of the project!

Each session we will bring in other community partners so you can learn more about the ecosystem of support for families and young children in Central Virginia. 

Dates:

We are offering three sessions this summer. Junior interns must commit to at least one session. If you are interested in interning for more than one session you can apply to intern for as many sessions are you are interested in and available for.

Interns must commit to coming one day a week (Monday – Thursday) during their session. You are welcome to apply to come more than one day a week if you would like to come more than once a week that session.

Each day will have two shifts: 9:30am-12:30pm and 12:00pm-3:00pm. Interns must commit to one time block during their session(s), and do have the option to come for the full day.

Preference will not be given to those interested in coming to more than one session or more than one day/shift.

Sessions:
Session 1 – June 3rd through June 28th
Session 2 – July 8th through August 2nd
Session 3 – August 5th through August 16th
