Environment: Remote / Virtual Internships and Volunteer Opportunities for Students and Professionals

Our nonprofit offers an outstanding opportunity to use your skills, gain experience, enhance your resume, and make a tremendous positive social impact in the world. Save the environment or address other favorite causes.

Who Is It For?

We welcome:

  • Undergraduate and graduate students and recent graduates at any time during the year
  • International students on CTP or OPT
  • "Dependent Spouses" of H1-B, F1, and L1 visa holders
  • Professionals looking to volunteer and make a difference

About Us

ChangingThePresent.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. The New York Times called us an "Amazon.com of the nonprofit world."

We work with hundreds of the most prestigious nonprofits in the country to help them capture some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year buying birthday, wedding, and holiday presents. We do this by making the experience of a donation, given in a friend’s name, feel like a rewarding gift and an appealing alternative to buying and giving yet more "stuff."

Our visitors can contribute to provide school children with their first book, preserve an acre of the wilderness, fund an hour of cancer research, etc. Wish lists and registries let them share their dreams for a better world. Personalized greeting cards make a charitable gift especially memorable. Gift cards let friends support the things they care about.

Unprecedented Opportunities for Responsibility and Leadership

Our interns get more responsibility than they will anywhere else. Take a professional, leadership role.

Environment, Climate Change, or Any Cause

You can focus on your favorite causes (including environment, climate change, education, hunger, women, children, cancer, human rights, veterans, etc.) or the charitable needs of any ethnic group, religious group, city, or country.

Most Areas of Academic / Professional Focus

We have positions that align with a wide range of academic and professional fields, including business development, analytics, finance, accounting, technology, web development, Salesforce, database, computer science, science, STEM education, marketing, digital marketing, communications, social media, publishing, Human Resources, organizational psychology, research, education, and graphics.

You Benefit

We want all our interns to get the following from their experience here:

  • Make a tremendous positive impact in the world.
  • Use your skills, experience, knowledge, creativity and talent.
  • Assume responsibility and take a leadership role.
  • Learn a tremendous amount.
  • Work with people from around the world in a diverse and supportive environment, and have a great time.
  • Enhance your resume with a record of professional achievement and community service.
  • Receive a great letter of recommendation.

When

We welcome full-time and part-time interns during the school year and/or the summer. We are entrepreneurial and flexible, and we are always hiring.

Where

Our office is conveniently located at 7 th Avenue and 33 Streets in Manhattan. We also have interns and volunteers who work remotely (as are all of us during the pandemic).

About Changing The Present

Location:

401 7th Avenue, level B, New York, NY 10001, US

Mission Statement

We are launching our new website, which involves inviting the participation of all one million nonprofits, providing each with their own private gift site, and promoting this growing social norm: You don’t have to buy stuff to show your love; instead, you can do something meaningful in a friend’s name.

Description

ChangingThePresent is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which helps channel to nonprofits some of the $250 Americans spend each year on birthday, holiday, and other gifts, by making the experience of giving a donation in a friend’s name feel like a gift with tangible giving opportunities, wish lists, registries, and beautiful, personalized printed greeting cards. The New York Times referred to the site as an "amazon.com of the nonprofit world." You may recognize this as the approach proven by Heifer International, which raises $115 million a year by letting people donate to fund farm animals in a friend’s name. If farm animals can attract that much money, imagine how much is available for more popular causes.
