Fall and Spring Marketing Internships at CASA of Union County
CASA of Union County, Inc.
Are you an aspiring marketing student looking to make a difference at a nonprofit organization this Fall? Are you looking to gain professional experience across social media platforms and trying to hone your marketing skills? Do you have an interest in helping children in the foster system? CASA of Union County’s Marketing Intern position may be exactly what you are looking for!
Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. Too many spend years moving from one temporary home to another. They are more likely than other children to face homelessness, unemployment, even prison as adults. CASA was created to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. CASA trains advocates who are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he or she can thrive. Our marketing and development team makes sure that the organization has the resources necessary to do this critical work.
CASA of Union County is looking for a college or graduate student to volunteer this Fall to help the marketing and development team continue to make CASA thrive. The student would commit to working approximately 10-15 hours per week from September through early December. Duties may include:
- creating social media posts
- assisting in maintaining and updating the organization website
- drafting articles for the monthly newsletter
- researching press opportunities
- submitting press releases
- assisting at recruitment events (if in-person recruitment is an option due to Covid-19)
- helping promote, prepare for and assist during such upcoming events as the virtual Gala, and
- exploring potential grant opportunities.
Potential volunteers should have a passion for helping children, understand and have experience with various social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and have excellent written communication and research skills.
Please note: We hope this internship will be on-site in our Elizabeth office. However, if current Covid-19 health and safety concerns preclude that possibility, the position can be fully remote if necessary.

The mission of CASA is to recruit, screen and train community volunteers to advocate for the best interest of foster care youth in Family Court. We promote and support quality volunteer representation for children to provide each child a safe, permanent, nurturing home.
Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.
