Founded in 2000 by a teacher in the Bronx, nonprofit organization DonorsChoose.org helps alleviate the lack of resources available to American educators. Public school teachers propose classroom projects on the site, and donors contribute towards a funding goal that buys instruments, electronics, art supplies, and other learning tools for students.
Internships with DonorsChoose.org are crucial insights into the nonprofit and educational sectors. As an operations intern, for example, you’ll process each project proposal and act as a liaison between donors and teachers. The human capital intern ensures that the organization attracts the best talent and manages the office to promote an effective workplace.
You’ll support programs in business development, marketing, human resources, legal services, education, office administration, and IT. For a full rundown of the different roles, head over to the DonorsChoose.org Campus Hub and apply for a job!
