Summer Internship

We are looking for a summer intern who is passionate about helping those in need in RVA. You will not be filing or sitting at a desk for this internship. Instead, you will enhance our social media presence, collaborate with companies/organizations on events/fundraising opportunities, and strengthen our communication to volunteers, donors, and partners. You will also attend meetings, shoe giveaways, and help prep for shoe giveaways. 

We need someone who is energetic, fun, who has a big heart and loves connecting with others.  Strong knowledge of social media is a must and photography would be a plus.

2 credit hours (8 weeks/100 hours=12.5 hours a week). Start and end dates are flexible.  We do have a big event on May 11th at GoochlandCares if you want to start your internship early. No pay but, an incredible experience. And let’s be honest, interning for a nonprofit like Shood will look great on your resume and land you a great reference.

Please email, if you are interested. We would love to hear from you.  Thank you!!
