Fall 2016 Internship Opportunity:

Applications are now open for a Fall 2016 internship for a specific project under the supervision of iEmpathize’s Education Director. This internship is a Legislative Research Project. The goal of the project is to gather information that will help iEmpathize with strategies related to distribution efforts for The Empower Youth Program, our exploitation prevention program for youth. This project provides the opportunity for an intern to gain experience in the non-profit sector, in the education arena, and in the political sphere.  Build your resume with meaningful work that will prove your ability to build a report of analysis with a national perspective while also making an impact for youth.

Project Description:

  • Conduct independent research regarding laws and legislative works-in-progress related to exploitation prevention education in all fifty states. Yield a final report of the compiled information along with recommendations based on your analysis for what strategies to pursue for prevention efforts. Details will be provided during interviews.
  • Potentially conduct correspondence with legislative and political leaders throughout the U.S.
  • Report findings on a regular basis, to be determined with the Education Manager, with the goal of completion by the end of the Fall 2016 semester.
  • Devise an organized, clear, and replicable system for reporting that will yield a professional quality report at the project’s end.
  • One position available only.

Required Qualifications:

  • Students in graduate level fields of study only.
  • Capable of independent problem solving and self-motivated work. This project will require ingenuity and persistence in finding information, working through barriers where there seem to be road-blocks, adjusting for the quirks and differences of each state’s systems, and efficient use of time in order to complete the project by the due-date while also being thorough.
  • Organization and attention to detail.
  • A curious mind with an ability to perceive and pursue leads, though they may be disparate from state-to-state.
  • Ability to contribute at least 5 hours a week to the work; more if that is what is required to get the job done in time.
  • Students from anywhere in the nation may apply.

To Apply:

Please send a resume with three references (names, contact info, and relationship indicated) along with a cover letter to Candace Joice at candace@iempathize.org. Please use your cover letter to answer these questions: Why do you want this internship in particular? Can you provide some examples of projects or tasks you have completed in the past that would indicate your ability to successfully take on a self-guided project of this kind?

Thank you!
