South Nashville FRC Internships
Description: South Nashville FRC internships provide an opportunity to practice and learn the basic skills of community organizing and nonprofits. Interns will receive in-the-field experience working with diverse populations, networking with community leaders, planning and managing projects and events, facilitating meetings and researching current neighborhood issues. Student's responsibilities will vary depending on year of study, interests, and abilities.
Desired qualifications: Appropriate candidates will have a commitment to economic, racial, and social justice, as well as having strong writing and interpersonal skills. We are looking for persons who are self-motivated and ready to accept a challenge. Bilingual students will have additional learning opportunities. Furthermore, knowledge of how to use Microsoft Word, Power Point, Excel, Access, and other software is considered a plus. Students studying social work, nonprofit administration, psychology, sociology, political science, religious studies, and public health are especially encouraged to apply.
Other Information: Internships during the academic year may be part-time and are for a minimum of 10 weeks. The SNFRC may be able to work with your school to ensure that you receive academic credit for your internship as this internship is unpaid. Internships are also available during the summer.
