Nonprofit Internship at Open Arms
Open Arms of Minnesota
The Nonprofit Intern will participate in nearly every aspect of the organization, playing an integral role in the daily activities of the organization and exploring how a nonprofit operates. Intern activities may include, but are not limited to, preparing and packaging meals in the kitchen, delivering meals to clients, greeting delivery driver volunteers, gardening at our farm plot, and performing administrative tasks. Whenever possible, time will also be allotted to facilitate projects related to an intern’s specific area of interest.
A commitment of at least 12 hours a week is required, and all Open Arms interns are asked to complete 240 total hours of service. This position will preferably begin in the last half of August, and each intern will need to commit to working a minimum of one Saturday a month from 8 a.m. to noon. This is an unpaid internship, although OAM will work with the colleges or universities to help interns receive credit for their work, or to confirm service for fellowships.
About Open Arms of Minnesota
2500 Bloomington Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55404, US
It's a simple notion: people who are sick should not be without food. Yet it happens every day that people in our community with life-threatening illnesses find themselves unable to shop or cook -- and, often, without the support network to help. That's where we come in. Open Arms is the only nonprofit organization in Minnesota that cooks and delivers free meals specifically tailored to meet the nutrition needs of individuals living with HIV/AIDS, MS, ALS, cancer and more than 42 other diseases. We also work with communities in Sub-Saharan Africa, providing food and technical assistance for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. We aim to nourish our community.
A diverse and fun group of volunteers and staff work together to prepare and deliver nutritious meals to 1,000+ people living with chronic and progressive illnesses in the Twin Cities.
