Internship posted by: Behind the Book
Posted on: January 17, 2013
In the midst of shrinking education budgets, Behind the Book (BtheB) offers NYC students a refreshingly creative and empowering experience. We bring authors and their books into individual classrooms to build literacy skills and create a community of life-long readers and writers. Authors teach a series of workshops that engage and inspire students and culminate in the publication of a writing project, such as an illustrated book, a school newspaper, or a short story anthology.
Behind the Book interns are essential in supporting a growing organization, and gain valuable skills and experience in project management and nonprofit work. The Development Intern will work closely with the Director of Development to manage all aspects of the organization's fundraising and program evaluation.
This is an unpaid position based in our Harlem office. Candidates can receive academic credit. Commitment is for one semester, 2-3 days per week, hours are flexible.
Development Intern responsibilities will include:
The successful candidate will be detail-oriented, eager to learn, and able to manage tasks independently.

A background in education theory or previous non-profit experience is a plus. Candidates interested in fundraising and philanthropy are strongly encouraged to apply.
