FBB Staff and Volunteer Positions
Position: Spring 2014 Intern
Number of positions: 4
Foundation Beyond Belief is looking for volunteer interns to join our fun and welcoming staff between January 2014 and August 2014. Our interns are a vital part of our organizational structure, and each intern plays an important role in helping to build what is still a new and quickly growing charity. FBB volunteer interns commit to work 8-10 hours per week depending on their specific role, and can complete their tasks from anywhere with an Internet connection.
Further Details & Basic Requirements
In addition to the requirements for each program area, we require people who are:
Experience in the nonprofit sector is not a requirement but is certainly a plus, as are experience working with local groups, research skills, and writing experience. Foundation Beyond Belief is happy to work with students who are participating in internship credit programs through their school.
Although interns often have tasks that overlap several areas of Foundation operations, each intern is primarily focused on one specific program area. Candidates should apply to only one internship position, but may indicate interest in other roles.
Since each intern cycle is different, we will match interns based on their primary selected role, the Foundation’s needs, the number of applicants for each category, and the selected candidate’s strengths and past work/volunteer experience.
All interns will help make sure FBB’s online work collaboration space is organized and updated, attend weekly staff meetings, and provide weekly reports on their activities.
Complete applications should include a letter of interest, resume or CV, and three professional (work, volunteer, or school) references who can be contacted via e-mail. Candidates should carefully review and incorporate the requirements of their preferred role into their application materials.
We appreciate your time and interest in working with FBB, and we look forward to hearing from you!
What past interns have to say about their FBB internship:
“My work with FBB exposed me to humanist giving at its finest.” — Bridget Gaudette, 2012 spring membership intern
“My internship and continued relationship with FBB has broadened my perspective of how I can personally be involved in impacting the positive life-changing work of our beneficiaries and the humanist movement as a whole. It has changed my life and inspired me to stretch myself, discover more talents, and learn about my passions in life.” — AJ Chalom, 2012 summer Beyond Belief Network intern
“My Foundation Beyond Belief internship definitely didn’t feel like an internship at all, because all my ideas were taken seriously and I felt that I had a real tangible impact on the organization.” — Ashley Kirsner, 2013 spring membership intern
"Being an FBB intern gave me the opportunity to really make a positive difference in the name of humanism, without having to compromise my beliefs (or lack thereof)." — Ellen Andrews, 2013 summer membership intern
“For me, the internship opened my eyes to an entire movement of non-religious secular activists and philanthropists, some of whom were literally down the street from my home and office. I've never had another position where I felt like I could accomplish so much. I've never felt more empowered than by that first round of charity vetting I did while still an intern. You come to really cheer for your favorite charities, both to be selected by the board and to get member support.” — Brittany Shoots-Reinhard, 2011 summer intern
“Being an intern at FBB gave me a unique opportunity to work for a greater good through a community I'm passionate about. It's an experience I'd recommend to anybody — and have!" — Sam Shore, 2012 fall LLS intern
