Remote Part-time Allows remote

Applications are being accepted for Fall 2018 internships on a rolling basis.

 

The internship is open to undergraduates, graduate students, or recent grads who are excited about our mission and able to commit 10-15 hours of work per week on a pro-bono basis. Interns work on projects as part of a geographically distributed team while staying in close contact with the Archimedes Project team through regular calls and our online collaboration system.

All interns are expected to be intelligent, independent thinkers with strong organization and writing skills. While the work of each internship is designed with the specific interests of the intern in mind, we will be looking for two to three interns to fit broadly into the following position descriptions.

 

Ideation Interns will help plan an upcoming Ideation Lab, a 3-day event that will bring together professionals from across sectors to design a market driven approach to increasing access to sanitation in Kenya. We are seeking two interns to conduct further research, identify potential partners, promote the event, and assist with event logistics. Interns will learn about social enterprise development, the sanitation “ecosystem” in Nairobi, and existing sanitation technologies and develop skills in research, information synthesis, marketing, fundraising, and event planning.

Business Development Intern will contribute to the development of new initiatives, partnerships and opportunities. Intern may also undertake research related to the organizational, financial, and legal structure of the Archimedes Project’s ongoing and future operations. This position will provide the opportunity to engage in activities related to nonprofit management, lean startup, base of the pyramid for-profit business design, and program development.

Storytelling Intern will work on article-style writing about the field of social enterprise and the work of the Archimedes Project and assist in developing our communication strategy. An ideal intern is an enthusiastic writer with a deep interest in social good organizations, who can think creatively about ways to engage existing and new audiences in our work.

Research Assistant will undertake social enterprise research related to the Archimedes Project countries of focus. An ideal intern is excited to delve into the global social enterprise ecosystem and has a familiarity with global development, social enterprise or business.

Fundraising Intern will support the expansion of the Archimedes Project’s fundraising capabilities, researching opportunities, assisting in the completion of applications, positioning the Archimedes Project for future opportunities, and expanding the organization’s donor base.
