Want to help build a new tradition in RVA? IT4Causes is a local startup nonprofit agency, and we want to grow our signature annual fundraising event, Tech4All. We're looking for someone who can help us pull off a family-friendly technology oriented event this fall, as well as run a series of fundraising happy hours throughout the year.
IT4Causes is seeking a student serve as our Event Management intern. In this role, you'll work with staff and volunteers to help pull together the fifth Annual Tech4All technology fair and fundraiser. You'll help contact potential sponsors, seek in-kind and monetary donations, organize partners who want to display their technical offerings in a shared space, plan food and beverage, coordinate with the facility, help with promotion, and of course, help us run day-of-event activities. With guidance of our staff and our great group of volunteers, you'll have plenty of help, but we will be counting on you to do the legwork to make sure we build on the success of prior events so that people will want to come year after year. You'll also help us run a few other smaller events throughout the year. Our small staff means you'll get to know all parts of our business, and because we serve other nonprofits, you'll get to meet leaders at many other charities in RVA. We'll provide a ton of networking opportunities, and you'll work with us to build capacity in not just one agency but in many organizations around the region.
Much of this work can be accomplished remotely. IT4Causes staff can meet students at UofR for weekly meetings to provide work assignments and guidance.
As a startup, we offer high growth potential. Expectations are an average of 5-10 hours per week during the school year with some flexibility to accommodate exams and breaks.
Where possible, we prefer to use the same interns for multiple semesters and through the summer.
Applicants selected for interview will be given instructions for a writing assignment to prepare for the interview to demonstrate written communications skills.
While we are seeking volunteers for this opportunity, in the past we have been able to arrange for Bonner Scholars and/or students eligible for Federal Work Study to get paid for their work with us.
This can be a volunteer, Bonner program, or Federal Work Study position. We will select candidates to participate in interviews before selecting the best candidate for the role.
