As many of you know, Kulanu is a nearly all-volunteer organization, with just two part-time staff members assisting scores of volunteers and community members who are making things happen in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Our volunteers are crucial to our work and this includes the Kulanu Internship Program!
Kulanu’s needs evolve as new communities and new projects emerge, so Kulanu interns will always be doing something different, and working with people from all over the world! Here are some of our Summer 2016 intern projects:
- Help book speaking tour events
- Coordinate Kulanu Watch Parties and social gatherings
- Digital media marketing / social networking
- Set up and maintain instagram account
- Manage our photos and videos
- Sell Kulanu community merchandise at public events, or offer them to museum stores and others
- Promote the Kulanu Mitzvah Program to bar/bat students and adults
- Support individual Kulanu board members
- Take our visitors sightseeing or accompany them to meetings
- Write comments on relevant blog posts and the Kulanu Blog
- Write op-ed articles about Kulanu
- Occasionally help the office staff with various administrative tasks
As part of the program, interns will participate in weekly seminars to report on progress, get updates, ask questions, learn about our communities and occasionally meet with our board members and other activists/leaders, including members of our Jewish communities in Africa and Latin America! Each intern will be assigned a “mentor” and a partner or team to work together to complete projects, and will receive a certificate and recommendation letter upon successful completion of the program.
The summer program will run from June 1st to August 31 (we can be flexible on these dates and would be happy to have interns start earlier).
Each intern will be expected to commit 10 hours each week, including the bi-weekly Wednesday meeting for one hour via Skype or Google hangout. It is important for our team that we have one hour every other week where we can all check-in together, discuss accomplishments, and prioritize future projects and goals. This is the only portion of time which is not flexible.
As the Kulanu office has limited space, we can only accept interns who have their own phone, computer, and internet access and can work their hours virtually.
The ideal Kulanu Intern will have an interest in supporting Jewish communities around the world, and an eagerness to learn new things.
