Join the Fight for Equality and Receive College Credit!
We are in need of energized and dynamic young leaders to become a part of the work being done across the state to create a fair and safe environment for all North Carolinians, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Equality NC is currently looking for students from all fields of study and backgrounds to fill internship positions in our Organizing, Public Policy, Communications and Development departments. Each intern will report directly to a supervisor whom will oversee internship projects, assignments and tasks on a daily basis. Prospective interns will be interviewed and selected by the Organizing, Public Policy, Communications, and/or Development Director respectively.
What's in it for You?
The movement towards LGBT equality cannot be won overnight. If we are to reach our goals it is imperative that we support and foster leadership in those who will continue the fight. As an ENC Intern, students will learn the basic and advanced skills needed to become effective grassroots organizers. Our interns are an important part of the Equality NC family and each intern takes on tasks and projects that directly aide in achieving Equality NC's mission.
Organizing Interns will be primarily involved in outreach to the community as well as volunteer management and coalition building.
Public Policy Interns will work on our local and state electoral programs as well as our legislative agenda.
Communication Interns will participate in our social media outreach including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Development Interns will work with our fundraising staff to manage donor relations and produce fundraising events.
Our internship requires a minimum of 15 to 20 hours per week and ideally would be for school credit. Outstanding applicants who wish to do the internship without school credit will be considered. Please note, if you are not located near one of our offices, if selected as an intern, you will be required to work remotely.
