Rebuilding Alliance seeks a talented intern to coordinate our 'Stay Human Conference Call' series. These conference calls bring members of Congress and constituents together to hear from Palestinian and Israeli peacemakers first-hand and find ways to help. The goal is to keep our representatives up-to-date with issues on the ground in Palestinian villages at risk of demolition or expropriation, and to connect them with constituents that care. We also hope to provide a space for mentorship, and to lay the groundwork for activists to organize and cultivate a relationship with their Congressional staff. The Stay Human Conference Call Intern(s) will be supervised by the Advocacy Program Manager.
This internship is an excellent next step to build your career in journalism, publishing, communications, public policy, government, or even event planning.
You will work with the Advocacy Program Manager to schedule a teleconference twice a month. Here's more information: http://www.rebuildingalliance.org/stay-human-conference-calls
The ideal candidate is good with making phone calls, scheduling, and social media, pays attention to technical details, is willing to learn about community-directed policy change, and is keenly interested in peace-making and the Middle East. In addition, you must be able to handle multi-faceted projects, have excellent writing skills, be determined to get busy speakers to send you their bios on time, and be able to process audience registration data. Furthermore, a candidate must be motivated, self- directed, able to meet deadlines, and work well both individually and as part of a team.
We're asking for a minimum commitment of 3 days per week. If you are interested in joining us, please reply with a cover letter addressed to Rebuilding Alliance's Executive Director, Donna Baranski-Walker, and Advocacy Program Manager, Tamsin Avra, along with a resume and 3 references.
Thank you again for your interest!
P.S. Here's what Mollie Traver said about coordinating these conference calls as an intern at Rebuilding Alliance:"I always talk about interning with the Rebuilding Alliance as one of my most important, challenging and formative work experiences, especially when I’m in interviews. You asked and expected big things of me right away, and I’m so grateful for that - coordinating a teleconference series, making phone calls to important peacekeepers, offering insights in team meetings, updating our internet presence. These are skills that I value so highly, and that I’m sure will be so important as I enter this industry [publishing] that is entirely new to me. I would also like to stay in touch with you and The Rebuilding Alliance and help in any way I can in the coming years, whether through donations or volunteering my time when I’m back in the Bay Area." -Mollie Traver, Rebuilding Alliance Intern Emeritus
