Active Minds internships are geared towards current college students and recent college graduates. As a small nonprofit, Active Minds relies on the help of our interns tremendously as they work directly on important initiatives and projects as well as assist staff on a variety of administrative tasks. Interns have the opportunity to do substantive work, gain experience in the nonprofit sector, and help change the culture around mental health.
All Spring 2022 internships will be remote with an anticipated start date of January 18, 2022 and end date of April 29, 2022. We expect interns to work a minimum of 20 hours a week, be available to work between 9:00am and 6:00pm EST, and commit to staying on board for the entire semester.
Active Minds pays interns a stipend of $1,250 per month.
Development Internship Responsibilities
As part of the Development team, interns will learn about the vitally important work of supporting a nonprofit’s mission by inspiring supporters. Development interns get an up-close look at how Active Minds financially supports a network of 800 campuses, workplaces, and communities with Active Minds programs, all across the country.
Interns with the Development team will strengthen their communication skills as they help develop messages that motivate people to support Active Minds as well as their people skills by supporting fundraisers and advocates passionate about our work. Some projects that interns contribute to include: outreach to donors, students, and partners, planning special events, data entry, and content creation for newsletters, donor letters, and fundraising pages. They will also have the opportunity to collaborate on projects in partnership with the Development and Programs teams. Development interns will have a direct impact on the success of nationwide fundraising initiatives that support the entire organization.
