Community Organizer Summer Intern (Community Heart & Soul)
What is Community Heart & Soul?
Community Heart & Soul reconnects people with what they love most about their town and translates those personal and emotional connections into a blueprint that serves as the foundation for future community decisions. It's a barn-raising approach to community planning and development designed to increase participation in local decision-making and empower residents to shape the future of their communities in a way that upholds the unique character of each place. http://www.orton.org
The intern will gain exposure to national experts in rural community development, community organizing and philanthropy.
An integral portion of the Heart & Soul process is the collection of community stories from a wide variety of residents with particular focus on traditionally underrepresented voices. The intern will spend the summer supporting the Heart & Soul Community Project Coordinator in collecting, evaluating and cataloging stories. It is important for the candidate to have exceptional networking/relationship skills, community organizing experience, and data management skills.
We ask that applicants commit to a maximum of 40 hours per week for 12 weeks in Mt. Blanchard, Ohio. Shifts will be regular, yet flexible. May include some weekends/holidays.
Applications are due April 15, 2017 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
