Working at MLK Beloved Streets of America, you will be on a team, which may be responsible for, but are not limited to the following:
Researching leads for potential sponsor and partner organizations. Updating and maintaining sponsor profile database. Developing letters, fact sheets, and other informational materials about Beloved Streets of America for potential Sponsors. Assisting the Marketing team, Accounting & Bookkeeping, HR Team, Board of Directors, and other interns accomplish tasks as needed. You do not need to be an expert, but rather have a thirst for learning about BelovedStreetsofAmerica.org and growing as a Fundraising Outreach Intern!
This is a learning environment so we don't expect you to know everything! Applicants with prior educational and/or work experience in Corporate Sponsorship are preferred, but WE WILL TRAIN THE RIGHT PERSON who is enthusiastic, dedicated, and willing to learn. Candidate must show an interest in all aspects of the media and be comfortable having conversations with anyone. Being able to listen is just as important as being able to speak. If you want to be a Corporate Sponsorship Liaison someday, this internship will give you that experience!
Students and NON-STUDENTS of any age (over 18) and those transitioning into (or building upon) a Corporate Sponsorship career are welcome to apply.
Skills and abilities:
Enthusiasm and interest in fundraising and community outreach. Exceptional interpersonal skills. Excellent research skills, writing and organizational skills. Talented public speaker. Intermediate experience with MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint. Ability to meet deadlines and effectively multitask, and able to attend Skype meetings once or twice a week (we will work with your schedule), and able to attend at least 10 Beloved Streets of America Team Meetings.
You will need reliable access to an Internet connection, your own computer, Skype, and phone.
You will work directly with the Marketing team, Accounting & Bookkeeping, HR Team, Board of Directors and supervisors. You will also have frequent input and communications with the Founder of BelovedStreetsofAmerica.org and get the inside, behind-the-scenes view of a start-up, virtual company. Successful interns will receive a top-notch letter of recommendation and referrals to important business and employment contacts. In addition, we will gladly help you arrange for academic credit.
This internship is virtual. You will work from home (or school, or Starbucks, or the library...or wherever). You can work anywhere as long as you have reliable internet connection and a quiet area for Skype meetings.
Immediately! Approximately 10 hours a week for 20 weeks; we are flexible and your internship is negotiable. We will work with you.
This is an unpaid internship, but the experience is priceless!
