About Change for Change

Change for Change is a national non-profit organization that mobilizes young people to improve their communities by donating spare change to charities of their choice. We are based on the idea that small change – the extra coins lying around under couch cushions, in coat pockets, and in desk drawers – can be used to make big changes in our communities. Through our programming, we’re focused on making charitable giving more fun, accessible, and transparent, while also supporting community charities where small donations have a meaningful impact.

For the last 15 years, Change for Change has organized change drives, social events, and digital activations to raise over $200,000 for more than 40 community charities — all via small contributions. We’ve worked with over 20 partner organizations, including leading brands (Biore), employers (JPMorgan), and universities (Cornell, McGill, Amherst, and many more).

ChangeWeek

We’re launching a new initiative called ChangeWeek, a coordinated, nationwide change drive for high school students spanning one week in March 2015. ChangeWeek will be comprised of 30-50 participating high schools, and students will plan and implement fun, creative, community-building fundraising events to benefit charities of their choice (e.g., Kilometer of Coin, Penny Wars).

National High School Recruitment Intern

We are seeking one or two enthusiastic, motivated interns to bring ChangeWeek to high schools across the country. The more schools that are involved, the bigger impact ChangeWeek will have in communities nationwide.

In this role, you will lead Change for Change’s efforts to build up a roster of incredible student leaders and spirited high schools to join our national change drive. Interns will gain valuable experience in project management and communication -- as well as the opportunity to develop a new and unique event, inspire thousands of high school students nationwide, and spur charitable giving for worthy community causes.

Responsibilities:

-Identify target high schools in assigned state/region and contact student leaders and/or staff via phone and/or email to solicit participation.
-Identify organizations with multi-school relationships (e.g, honor societies, sports associations, etc) to serve as recruitment partners to promote ChangeWeek across their member schools. Contact organization representatives by phone and/or email to solicit participation.
-Track communications and interested schools and partners.
-Review ChangeWeek applications to determine eligibility and fit, offering a recommendation to Change for Change senior leaders on approval.
-Obtain approval from school administrators of applicant schools, when needed.
-Provide applicant schools with any assistance they might need before and during registration.
-Participate in conference calls with the Change for Change leadership team.
-Exhibit support and enthusiasm for event.

Qualifications

-Currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree, or a recent college graduate.
-Exceptional verbal and written communication skills.

-In other words, you should be extremely comfortable with phone
and email communication -- and be comfortable calling/emailing
school leaders and officials to invite them to be part of this
new and exciting event.
-Strong time management skills with the ability to set and meet deadlines
-Independent and self-motivated.
-Passion for Change for Change’s work.

Interns can be located anywhere in the US and are expected to complete 10+ hours of task work per week from home or school while recording progress and communicating frequently with the Change for Change leadership team.

This is an unpaid position, but college credit is available.

Please include a resume and cover letter when applying.
