Citizens Committee for New York City seeks a motivated and talented individual to join our team as a Development Intern! As one of the nation's oldest micro-funding organizations, we at Citizens Committee raise money from foundations, corporations, and individual donors—then award it to projects we believe in. Whether it's painting a mural, organizing a farmer's market, launching a dance camp, or installing compost bins we help New Yorkers make their ideas a reality. The position is 16-20 hours a week, ideally from the beginning of January to the end of August. We hope to work with students that are in programs that require an internship, and the internship offers a modest stipend.
