Communications Intern – Spring 2019

Inside/Out Youth Services is seeking an intern to manage our communications needs, including weekly emails to volunteers, donor communications, event promotions, and curation of our social media. Students entering a Spring, Summer, or Fall 2019 semester at a local college, with versatile tech skills and experience, would be well-suited to this task.

Event Assistance

Help us host and organize events for youth and Inside/Out fundraising events throughout the year! Volunteers can be involved in every aspect of events from planning committee to marketing to being present at the event.
