The Best Internships and Volunteer Opportunities

Focus on Faith-Based Nonprofits

Remote / Online / Virtual is fine


Intern or Volunteer

Here is a great opportunity for anyone interested in the cause of Faith-Based Nonprofits.

Use your skills, enhance your resume, and make a difference with an internship at an acclaimed nonprofit.

Who Is It For?

We welcome:

  • Professionals
  • "Dependent Spouses" of H1-B, F1, and L1 visa holders
  • Recent international graduates looking for OPT opportunities
  • Graduate students and Undergraduates, including those who want a CPT opportunity
  • International students living in other countries
  • A small number of truly exceptional high school students

Great Experience; Unpaid

We offer a fantastic experience. Please note that we only have unpaid positions.

When and Where

We welcome full-time and part-time interns during the school year and/or the summer. We are conveniently located at 7 th Avenue and 33 Streets in Manhattan, and many people on our team work remotely. At the time of this posting, March 2020, we are all working remotely due to the COVID-19 virus.

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 providing 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.


Interns and Volunteers from Around the World

We have had interns and volunteers from sixty countries around the world, including China, India, Korea, Japan, Italy, United Kingdom, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Turkey, France, Brazil, Chile, Dubai, Mexico, Israel, and others.


Unprecedented Opportunities for Responsibility and Leadership

Our interns get more responsibility than they will anywhere else. You will never run a copy machine, file papers, or fetch coffee here, as you might at so many other organizations. Instead, you will work in small teams and take a professional leadership role.

Focus on Faith-Based Nonprofits

The team focusing on Faith-Based Nonprofits will work on the following:

  • Expand our Board of Advisors with influential leaders
  • Build and expand a group of Experts to recommend their favorites
  • Get the word of this opportunity for new funding to nonprofits that address the cause.
  • Reach bloggers, journalists, professional associations, and student organizations to get the word out and grow participation.
  • Identify potential philanthropic funders: individuals, corporations, and foundations that support the cause.
  • Promote our efforts and the cause through social media and online communities.


Any Academic / Professional Focus

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


Additional Causes

We also have positions that focus on each charitable cause, ethnic group, religious group, American city, or country. We cover the full range of causes, including education, hunger, women, children, cancer, human rights, environment, etc.

Additional Roles

We are also recruiting Social Media Managers for each charitable cause, College Campus Ambassadors, and High School Ambassadors. (Yes, we need college and HS Ambassadors even while school is not in session).

You Benefit

We want all our interns/volunteers 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.

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.
