Friends Association offers a semester-long non-paid internship to current full-time or part-time college students or recent graduates that will directly benefit their education and ultimately their career. The primary role of the Volunteer Management Intern is to assist with the design, implementation, and management of the volunteer program.
You will assist with the Volunteer Coordinator's chief responsibility of managing the volunteer program, which includes marketing, recruitment, data management, scheduling and supervision. As a Volunteer Management intern, the need to handle community relations is key. You will assist with the management of all volunteer program-related communications and special events as well other duties and tasks as assigned. Applicants should be pursuing a degree in HR or Volunteer Management. The internship is approximately 6-10 hours per week.

Friends Association promotes the independence of families with children by providing shelter, programs and services that prevent and end homelessness in Chester County.
Friends Association helps homeless or near homeless families stabliize their lives and find or maintain permanent housing. Through our Emergency Family Shelter, Outreach and Homeless Prevention Programs we address the needs of a wide range of families with children, from those who have become homeless to those who need assistance for a limited time. Our programs help families cope with the complex problems they face while we guide them to find permanent, affordable housing.
Emergency Family Shelter
Our Shelter program combines a private, safe setting and basic necessities with individualized case management services for our families. We strive to keep parents and children together as they work toward becoming stable and productive in their homes, jobs and schools.
Homeless Prevention Program
We help families with children find or maintain safe, permanent housing. Our program balances strong case management services with financial assistance, when needed, for families coming from a shelter or those facing eviction. Our families become independent within 12 to 18 months.
Outreach to Homeless Families
Our Outreach Program connects homeless families with numerous community resources when shelter beds are not available and helps each family develop a plan to transition into stable housing. The program's goal is to secure resources to sustain these families until they are temporarily or permanently housed.
We'll work with your schedule.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
