TASKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Interns will specialize in the particular area associated with their position (communications, grants, or program support), but have the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of tasks, programs, and projects. All interns will need to familiarize themselves with HealthRight’s programs. Interns are required to work 20 hours per week, and are expected to support in the planning and execution of one intern fundraiser (likely virtual).
HealthRight interns are an integral part of the HealthRight team. They assist staff with developing and implementing programs, promoting HealthRight’s mission and achievements, advocating for the rights of marginalized communities, and assisting with special projects and the day‐to‐day operations of the organization.
Interns work both independently and as a team, collaborating closely with HealthRight staff, as well as academic and NGO partners. Successful candidates will have a passion for global health and human rights, an eagerness to learn, the ability to self- manage in a collaborative environment, and strong writing skills. This is an ideal opportunity for students enrolled in a relevant bachelor’s or master’s program or recent graduates interested in program development, fundraising, and communications.
• Enrolled in a relevant bachelor’s or master’s program or recent graduate
