Exploring the possibility of doing a summer internship for a nonprofit next year? If so, be sure to put Idealist.org, at the top of your resource list.
The mission of Idealist is to “connect people, organizations, and resources to help build a world where all people can live free and dignified lives.”
In addition to internships, you can “connect” into information on full-time jobs, volunteer opportunities, fellowships and research information on nonprofits organizations, “around the world.”
Idealist also sponsors a Grad Fair each year in a variety of locations. This year, UNC Chapel Hill is hosting the Idealist Grad Fair in the North Carolina region. The date is Saturday, November 12, 2011, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. If you are interested in pursuing advanced degrees in social services, public policy or international development, plan to attend. If you are unable to attend the fair on this date, check Idealist for other dates/locations.
Your “Idealist” opportunity is just a click a way.
