Founded in 1988, Food & Friends provides freshly prepared meals, nutrition support, and friendship to people living with AIDS, cancer, and other life challenging illnesses. Our team of fifty-five employees and thousands of volunteers delivers meals and hope to people living in the District of Columbia and multiple counties across Maryland and Virginia. There is no charge or income qualification for our services, which are rendered solely on the basis of medical need.
We seek a Volunteer Services Intern to enhance and lead elements of our volunteer program. Duties will include facilitating orientations; recruiting and cultivating relationships with individual and organizational volunteers; and recording and reporting on data collected about our volunteers and their experiences.
This is a part-time, unpaid internship expected to last one semester. The internship offers a flexible schedule during normal business hours, with the expectation that the intern will provide a minimum of twelve hours of work per week. The Volunteer Services Intern will gain valuable, resume-building experience in volunteer and nonprofit management with one of the most prominent nonprofit organizations in the Washington region.
The successful candidate will have completed at least one year of college, and have demonstrated interest in nonprofit or volunteer management. Prior relevant work or volunteer experience strongly preferred. Additional requirements include excellent oral and written communication skills, strong public speaking ability, ability to thrive in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment, and an appreciation for diversity.
Our staff enjoys a high quality, fun, and diverse work environment. Food & Friends is Metro accessible, and has free on-site parking.
