Internship Description: JDRF’s Tampa Bay Chapter produces a JDRF One Walk
in April and fall Gala plus several Outreach events. Summer and fall months are
spent assisting the Chapter’s Development Coordinators with auction procurement,
communications and coordination of the event in addition to planning, coordinating
and marketing the Walk. To support these efforts JDRF also produces recruiting and
training events for audiences ranging from 40 to 500 people. These events include a
Progress to Type None Event, and a Corporate Recruitment event for the walk.
The Special Events Intern will work closely with the Development Coordinators to
prepare for and help execute these events. The Intern will be expected to provide
administrative support, work with volunteers on various projects, and provide onsite
coordination for special events. Efforts will be made to include Interns at
planning meetings, company team meetings and on event site visits.
This is a great opportunity to gain fundraising and event management experience with one of the nation’s largest non-profits. In addition to the Walk and Gala, our office also
coordinates community educational outreach events, and fundraising events such as
golf tournaments and a bike ride event. All event proceeds support research to find
a cure for diabetes. Each intern will be supervised and mentored by JDRF’s
Development Coordinators. JDRF will be happy to provide an evaluation and letter
of recommendation/reference at the end of your internship.
Qualification/Skills: JDRF is seeking a responsible, organized intern with a passion
for learning and making a difference. Candidates must have strong writing skills and
a comfort level with Microsoft Word and Excel. The start and end dates of the
internship are open for discussion, as well as the number of hours per week.
This is a non-paid internship; credit hours for school are available. JDRF is willing to work with you to develop an internship that suits both JDRF and your needs!
