Non-Profit Seeking Student Interns

Eastside Community Connection is a nonprofit organization in East Austin designed to engage student from UT to help alleviate poverty in East Austin through various program including a food pantry and adulteducations courses. One of the core components of our operations is to engage students in intensive internship opportunities. The organization has one full time employee who manages and supervises a team of student interns who manage the day to day operations of the organization. Over the past 3 years, we have worked with over 100 UT students in various positions within the organization.

Our interns have significant responsibilities, including designing our programs, maintaining our budget, and supervising other volunteers. This is not an administrative internship but rather a challenging leadership experience. With those challenges comes the reward of doing meaningful work and gaining understanding of complex societal problems in our community.

I’m contacting you today because we have a few positions available for our Summer 2010 and Fall 2010 term. The summer positions will go from May 22nd thru August 20th. The fall positions will go from August 23rd through December 3rd. Any student who is interested should send me a cover letter, copy of resume, and three references to my email address – smajid@austinecc.org – by Friday, May 7th.

Students have made a tremendous impact in the community through our organization and it is my hope we can continue to give students an opportunity to make a difference.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

All the best.
