Skills

You’re super organized. You can multitask and keep track of what needs to be done.

You're a motivated fundraiser and have a special interest in faith-based groups.

You're eager to learn. You're inspired to change the world. You know that funding water projects in developing nations can do this. You're committed to charity: water's mission and solving the world water crisis.

You're articulate, direct and professional. You're more than capable of providing information concisely and effectively in writing or while speaking. You make sure you know the situation or data inside and out before sharing with donors. You hate typos!

You have the basics down pat. You know how to best use Microsoft Word, Excel and online tools to multitask and stay on top of several projects simultaneously.

You have experience and education to back you up. You're an undergraduate student, or recent graduate. You also have previous administrative work under your belt, and preferably experience working with faith-based organizations.

You're independent yet flexible.  You achieve results with little supervision. You aspire to own projects while also following our staff's critique and leadership.

Commitment

You'll start in late August / early September and commit to the entire fall semester at the charity: water office. We'll need you for 20 hours a week and in the office at least three days a week.

Compensation

This is an unpaid internship - but is an exceptional opportunity to gain experience at an international non-profit with an ambitious mission. We will gladly work with your institution to give you academic credit for your experience.
