About

The Learners Lab (TLL) is a charitable workforce training and fiscal sponsor resource center currently staffed by volunteer executives. We are hiring a part time Executive Assistant Intern to partner with the chief executive officer in conducting start-up operations.

From this internship program you will learn and assit with start-up strategic planning, non-profit operations, program management, capacity building (mentors & partners), and resource acquisition from the ground up. You will also help us refine the components of our Internship Program.

What distinguishes our Internship program from others, and from the Apprenticeship program will also develop, is learning TLL general business operations, as well as nonprofit business management, PLUS whatever industry, field, career, or specialized skill it is you want to begin mastering, to the extent that we can facilitate. Where we cannot deliver, we will secure a Mentor Partner so you can achieve that workforce training goal.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

* BS, communications, marketing, or journalism + at least 3 years work experience (full vs. part time vs. volunteer is not a factor)

* reliable computing equipment and Internet access; software provided as needed

* good proofing and attention to detail, highly organized

* discrete, well-suited to serving a confidential environment

* adept interpersonal and relationship building skills for encountering funders, government officials, TLL Partners and other interesting parties

We offer school credit (if candidate is in school), and will award credits+stipend as funding come in, something you will assist with.
