Descrição

Who We Are:

Active San Gabriel Valley (ActiveSGV) is a community-based environmental justice and public health non-profit headquartered in El Monte. Our mission is to create a more sustainable, equitable, and livable San Gabriel Valley. We envision a San Gabriel Valley where people of all ages, incomes, abilities, and backgrounds can thrive and where decision-making accounts for the needs of current and future generations. Where local and regional investments help address our most pressing challenges, including the climate crisis, housing affordability, and inequity. Where elected leadership reflects and accurately represents one of the United States’ most diverse regions. Where communities pilot best practices in public policy, health, sustainability, and governance.

The San Gabriel Valley is more vital by creating quality jobs, living wages, employment mobility, a strong economy, clean water and air, accessible parks, stable and affordable housing, safe and efficient transportation, and a healthy built environment that supports sustainability. As such, ActiveSGV is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in our work, aiming to eliminate barriers so our communities can lead happier, healthier lives. 

ActiveSGV strives to make our commitment evident across all levels: in our organizational structure, policies, board, staff, volunteers, donors, goals, and vision. We welcome people of all backgrounds and aim to maintain a culture of respect, openness, learning, integrity, honesty, and a sense of fun.

Internship Description

ActiveSGV seeks a highly motivated Intern to support the organization's projects and outreach to SGV communities. Under the direction of the Program Director, the Intern will support ActiveSGV’s outreach efforts for projects, programs, and services to advance the organization's mission. Individuals must be organized and prioritize workload; have experience in organizing and coordinating events; be self-motivated, with the ability to work effectively in both independent and team environments; possess excellent verbal and written communication skills, including the ability to interact positively and effectively with colleagues, city staff and elected officials, corporate and philanthropic representatives, and community members; be comfortable working in a fast-paced, project-driven work environment; be able to work respectfully with people of all cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds; be willing to take public and active transit for work business, and be passionate about the organization's focus area. 

Primary Project Description: 

Funded by the state Office of Community Partnerships and Strategic Communications (OCPSC) housed within the state Office of Planning and Research (OPR), the Trusted Messenger Network program focuses on conducting highly interactive outreach and engagement to encourage San Gabriel Valley residents to take actions related to OCPSC campaigns. Key campaigns include extreme heat, COVID-19 harm reduction, water conservation, and Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN). 

The Intern(s) will be expected to work collaboratively with a program team to conduct outreach activities, including but not limited to door-to-door canvassing, tabling at events or highly trafficked areas, phone banking, and hosting training, workshops, and meetings.
