Fuel Relief Fund is the world's only charitable organization focused exclusively on addressing fuel supply challenges in major disasters. By providing free fuel to affected communities and the aid agencies that support them, we empower disaster survivors to meet basic food and shelter needs and enable life-saving humanitarian activities. To date, FRF has deployed to large-scale disasters in the continental US, Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Nepal, the Philippines, Turkey, Mozambique, and Haiti and has served in a support and advisory capacity in many other complex emergency contexts around the globe. Our success in the field has opened doors to impactful private and public-sector partnerships, as well as international partnerships with United Nations agencies and other humanitarian actors.

We are looking for an intern who is interested in disaster relief/humanitarian aid and wants to gain experience in, and exposure to, domestic and international rapid response operations. As a small organization, you would have the opportunity to work on many different kinds of projects and support national and international deployments. You would report directly to the Executive Director, based in New York, however this internship can be done at least partially remotely.

Tasks and responsibilities would include, but would not be exclusive to :

  • Supporting online communications efforts in 'blue-sky' contexts as well as during emergency response deployments
  • Creating original content for social media pages website, e-blasts and other online communications platforms.
  • Updating and managing content for our Global Giving projects (https://www.globalgiving.org/donate/8287/fuel-relief-fund/)
  • Supporting our annual fundraiser and other smaller charity events

This is a hands-on position with a dynamic, passionate organization. We would like to find someone who is truly excited about the work and committed to the cause.
