Serve Your City/The Ward 6 Mutual Aid Hotline is seeking an intern to help us with our operations. The hotline is a crucial part of the aid that we provide to Ward 6 residents. Residents can call the hotline and request a delivery of groceries or information on any of the other kinds of aid that we provide. The Hotline intern is responsible for documenting all calls and making sure that the information is properly relayed to the delivery teams. Additionally, the Hotline intern will monitor the inbox and phone line for any other inquiries coming in- we serve as an informational hub for much of the work that happens at SYC/W6MA. We are seeking someone to help with operations for the hotline- to be able to help work the hotline and think about how it is run. This is a space that allows for direct interaction with community members and the rest of the organization. Hours per week: very flexible, 6-8 hours/week
Duration of the internship: Position is open for the duration of the summer and can be extended until the end of 2022

About SERVE YOUR CITY
732 15th Street SE, Unit 1, WASHINGTON, DC 20003, US
Serve Your City’s mission is to provide life-changing experiences and opportunities for under-resourced Washington, D.C. students. It aims to make sure Black and Brown students receive the same opportunities their White counterparts receive.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, SYC co-created the DC Mutual Aid Network, which is the central and only mutual aid network in the city, and is acting as the lead organizer for mutual aid in Ward 6 and beyond. With dozens of mostly Black- and Brown-led community organizations leading the work, the DC Mutual Aid Network is a community-led effort to safely support community members hardest hit by the pandemic. The network is a grassroots, trauma-informed response to the pandemic for the most vulnerable and under-resourced communities in Washington, DC. Members of these communities are disproportionately African Americans, People of Color, and those who have recently immigrated to the United States, and bear the burden of systemic poverty, racism, and environmental injustice. The mutual aid network is providing life-saving supplies, food, and PPE.For the last ten years, Serve Your City (SYC) worked tirelessly to create essential learning and athletic opportunities for at-risk students in our nation's capital.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
