Project: EqualHealth is a Boston-based non-governmental organization that strives to inspire, empower, and support the development of leaders among Haiti’s next generation of health professionals. We provide all of our trainings, tools, and services free of charge to Haitian health professionals. To ensure that these programs remain accessible for our partners, we are currently seeking to create a strong foundation of grant funding and private donations.
The Development Intern will work with a small team to research potential funding sources, write grant applications, solicit individual donations, and build and maintain donor relations.
Applicant: The ideal applicant will have some experience in development, or a strong interest in development/grant writing. (S)he will be self-motivated, able to work independently, and an excellent communicator. Additionally, the ideal applicant will have outstanding writing and organizational skills.
Supervisor: EqualHealth Executive Committee
Internship Logistics: The internship will start upon acceptance, and will continue for a minimum of one year with extension available. The time commitment will be approximately 5 hours per week. Most work will be done independently, with periodic meetings with EqualHealth staff and with interested applicants.
This is not a paid internship. However, EqualHealth is committed to helping individuals attain their academic goals, and to that end we are willing to work with those currently enrolled in college or graduate programs to meet requirements for practicum or other commitments in terms of supervision, documentation and time requirements.
