Programs Intern

By Maji Mazuri

As a Programs Intern, you will help us manage projects data, report to donors, publish photos, the GPS of events as well as our completed projects online. You will work closely with our programs team to help us connect our donors to the  projects they have funded.


Responsibilities:

Help with programs administration by editing documents, researching the relevant social development sectors, and coordinating staff or volunteers in the field. Evaluate and organize project reports from our local partners. This includes fact-checking and uploading GPS and photos of events and our completed projects. Prepare and send out completed project reports to donors. Update donor records to reflect project progress. Help maintain the reporting calendar for the Programs staff. Assist with other projects as defined by the Programs team.

Skills:

You’re not only driven — you can drive your own boat.

You are committed to solving the world crisis and are aware that keeping track of thousands of details in grassroots projects takes a lot of hard work. You welcome the challenge. You are a self-starter and take initiative on any projects assigned.

You’re a multitasking champion.

You can handle several projects at once and stay on top of them all. You thrive when working in a fast-paced environment. You are flexible and eager to pick up new skills.

You have the basics down pat.

You know how to best use Microsoft Word, Excel, and online tools to utilize time wisely. You are familiar with mail merge processes (riveting as they are).

You’re organized and diligent.

You know the devil is in the detail — and your meticulous nature trumps the threat. You are not afraid to admit mistakes and you fix what you can right away.

You have experience to back you up.

You have experience managing large data sets and can pick up on office systems quick. You are not afraid to ask questions when you cannot find the answer on your own. You are an undergrad student or a very recent grad.

Commitment:

We are looking for someone to start ASAP. Ideally, you would work 2-3 full days a week. Dates and times are flexible.

Compensation:

This is an unpaid internship but is an exceptional opportunity to gain development experience at an international non-profit with an ambitious mission. And we can work with your institution to give you academic credit for your experience. We’ll provide you professional development training through various workshops where available.
