Become an Intern

Children in Kehilat Kasuku in Kenya, by Yehudah Kimani

Here at Kulanu, volunteers are essential for all of our work. We have just two part-time staff members assisting scores of volunteers and community members who are making things happen in Africa, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. As we grow and expand, we are seeking committed interns to help us reach the next phase of our development – and in return, you can gain invaluable nonprofit experience while contributing to the Jewish world.

Kulanu’s needs evolve as new communities and new projects emerge, so as a Kulanu intern you will always be doing something different, and working with people all over the world. Here are some of our past intern projects:

  • Book speaking tour events
  • Coordinate Kulanu Watch Parties and social gatherings
  • Help with digital media and communications
  • Manage our photos and videos
  • Sell Kulanu community merchandise at public events
  • Take our overseas visitors sightseeing and accompany them to meetings
  • Write op-ed articles and press releases about Kulanu
  • Promote the Kulanu Mitzvah Program
  • Support individual Kulanu board members, advisors, regional coordinators, or committee members

We offer a professional development program to our interns, ensuring that you are gaining skills during your time at Kulanu. This includes:

  • Bi-weekly meetings with the whole Kulanu team to report on progress, get updates, ask questions, meet members of partner communities, and become a well-informed key player on our staff
  • An assigned mentor and team
  • References for future internships, job or university applications, or fellowships

Here’s what we need from you:

  • 10+ hours per work for 3+ months (a summer vacation or semester, for example)
  • Biweekly skype meetings arranged by mutual convenience
  • The ability to work remotely, meaning you have a phone and computer with a good internet connection
  • An interest in supporting Jewish communities around the world
  • A desire to develop your skills and open-mindedness to learn new ones
