These are two of the 500 South African artists with whom we work. They are lifting themselves out of poverty through their remarkable beadwork. Art Aids Art is building a community center in Khayelitsha to provide them with additional support.

About

Be part of a small, active international organization that is doing big things, a unique program combining the service of a nonprofit with the entrepreneurship of a small business. Art Aids Art promotes education, wellbeing and sustainable economic development, working primarily with South African women and children impacted by poverty and/or HIV/AIDS. We are the first American organization to open an art & education center in South Africa's largest township, Khayelitsha. For more information, visit www.artaidsart.org. Art Aids Art seeks an Intern to assist with and lead daily projects, both large and small. Responsibilities include but are not limited to the following: online social networking, public relations and Fair Trade sales at community events, office management, photography, documentation and inventorying of South African art and handcrafts, educational research, curriculum development, and assorted nonprofit administration and data entry duties. The Intern will gain valuable experience dealing with a range of tasks involving the workings of a nonprofit organization. This part-time internship will be a great opportunity for anyone interested in social justice, social entrepreneurship, women, children, Africa, HIV/AIDS, literacy, education, the arts, fair trade microbusiness development and/or non-profit management. We seek an organized, detail-oriented, responsible, and energetic self-starter with strong interpersonal skills. In exchange for your contribution of time and energy, we offer a unique environment with a mix of structure and autonomy. Some work will be at our office in Altadena, so access to a car is preferable, but other assignments will allow for online research at home. A part-time stipend is included. A minimum commitment from September, 2016 to June, 2017 is needed, however the job could possibly begin earlier depending on program needs and intern availability over the summer of 2016.
