CATHOLIC RELEIF SERVICES: SUMMER 2014 INTERNSHIPS

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is one of the largest humanitarian agencies, serving in more than 90 countries worldwide. An internship at CRS gives you an introduction to the world of international relief and development. It is an opportunity for you to gain professional experience, network with potentially useful contacts, and learn what it is like to work for a faith based organization.
The Summer Internship Program is CRS’s formal internship program. The program takes place from June to August for a period of 10 – 12 weeks (in some cases the internship may extend beyond the summer months). Interns work in departments across the organization and are responsible for a variety of tasks based on their skill set and the needs of their departments. Interns receive regular guidance, direction, and support from their supervisor to ensure a successful experience. The program is designed as a collaborative learning experience that includes a performance management assessment, activities with other interns in the cohort, and a collaborative intern project to culminate the internship experience.
CRS is looking for interns with:

  • Strong organizational skills and ability to collaborate in a team environment.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and oral/written communications
  • The commitment and ability to produce high quality, accurate work in an efficient and timely manner.
  • Proficiency in MS Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint is highly desirable.

On Campus Interviews for Summer Internship happening Next Week

About the Horned Dorset Colony

The Horned Dorset Colony, an emerging not-for-profit artist residency, is currently looking for an intern with focus on business management, communications and fundraising. The HDC (www.horneddorsetcolony.org) offers selected composers, photographers, writers, translators, and visual artists, a one-month residency, to work on a project of their choice, away from the distractions of daily life. Artists are encouraged to share experiences and perhaps even collaborate with artists of other disciplines through daily exchanges over dinner. The residency is located in the quiet, rural hamlet of Leonardsville, in central NYS, yet is within a half-hour drive of Cooperstown, Colgate University, Hamilton College, as well as two nearby residencies, Sculpture Space, and The Sam and Adele Golden Foundation’s Golden Paints’ residency.

 

Summer Internship

This internship provides an opportunity to join an enthusiastic and hard-working team to grow the HDC. The team consists of the three founders: a writer, a painter and a musician, with backgrounds in the hospitality business. The founders are owners of The Horned Dorset Inn, in Leonardsville (www.horneddorsetinn.com) and The Horned Dorset Primavera Hotel, in Rincón, Puerto Rico (www.horneddorset.com). The Horned Dorset Inn’s restaurant (www.horneddorsetinn.com) provides meals for the HDC residents as well as an exhibit and fundraising venue.

The HDC seeks assistance with business management and social-media skills and the expansion of fundraising, including income-raising pursuits, putting the residency in a solid position for grant seeking. The length of the internship could be flexible, but should include months when artists are in residence (July-August 2014).

Multiple Summer 2014 Internship Openings with PolicyLink

About PolicyLink

PolicyLink is a national research and action institute advancing economic and social equity by Lifting Up What Works®. PolicyLink collaborates with a broad range of partners to implement strategies to ensure that everyone—including those from low-income communities of color—can contribute to and benefit from economic growth and prosperity.  PolicyLink operates a summer internship program for continuing graduate students (master’s or doctoral) in public policy, urban planning, and related fields. Internships are paid and the duration is generally 10 weeks. PolicyLink occasionally hosts interns during the academic year, depending on project needs and student interest.

Intern Projects 

Each intern is responsible for developing one significant written product or several shorter products over the summer that contributes to a specific PolicyLink effort to advance equitable policy change. Products may include reports for public release (or components of reports), web-based tools, internal research or policy memos, case studies, literature reviews, opinion pieces, or blog posts. Interns are expected to carry out a research plan developed by their supervisor that will include gathering and analyzing qualitative and/or quantitative data. Interns typically conduct interviews, literature reviews, and web-based searches to gather information on equity challenges and promising programmatic and policy solutions. Sometimes they conduct quantitative data analyses or spatial analyses using GIS mapping software.  Interns work under the direct supervision of a senior staff member or the principal researcher or coordinator of a project.  Summer internship projects may be tailored to the specific interests of the intern provided that they match the needs of existing project areas.  At the end of the summer, each intern gives a presentation on his or her work to the PolicyLink staff.
