ANNOUNCING INTERNSHIPS at Community & Economic Development Nonprofit near Washington University
Housing & Community Solutions, Inc., a collaborative community & economic development non-profit, is currently receiving applications for Summer Internships. Internships are currently unpaid, and would provide valuable mentoring and professional development opportunities that may include benefits such as a student membership to a professional organization, like the Social Enterprise Alliance. Interns would work with and have regular access to HCSI’s President who has over 40 years of community development experience. This competitive internship would be an excellent resume-building opportunity and HCSI is willing to tailor the internship to build the student's skill set and match the student's interests. Housing can be provided in a three story home just blocks away from Washington University and the MetroLink stop at Big Bend and Forest Park Parkway.
College or graduate students pursuing a degree in Community and Economic Development, Social Enterprise, Urban Planning, Communications, Management, Grant writing or related fields will be considered. HCSI prefers a 20 hours/week commitment. HCSI’s office is located roughly ½ mile east of the Forest Park MetroLink Station on DeBaliviere.
To apply, please email a resume and a 1 page cover letter highlighting experience, what you are specifically interested in learning and what you hope to get out of such an internship to: Paul Sorenson, MSW. Applicants will be considered on a rolling basis. If you have submitted an application and have not received an email response within 3 business days, please call Paul at (314) 367-3147 ext. 27 to ensure that your application was received.
