Reproductive Health Access Project

The Reproductive Health Access Project (RHAP) is a national nonprofit organization that works directly with primary care providers, helping them integrate abortion, contraception, and miscarriage care into their practices so that everyone can receive this essential health care from their own primary care clinicians.

Internship description: 

As we are a small organization, all of our staff works very closely with each other, even remotely. Interns will spend time each week working with our different departments to learn different skills. They will work with our Network Team to support their efforts to organize clinicians across the country through state policy research, administrative support, and other projects, and on our organizational communications through managing social media platform content, creating new methods for member engagement, and designing social media campaigns to support our advocacy. Depending on the interests of the intern, there can also be the opportunity to work with our Research and Evaluation Manager on data collection and analysis in an evaluation of our programs or with our Manager of Individual Giving on recruitment and retention of lapsed and recurring donors.

Internship skills needed: 

Detail-oriented, computer literate and willing to learn new programs, familiarity with social media, strong written and verbal communication skills in English.

Office information:

We are expecting to still be remote in summer 2021. The building location is accessible by public transportation.

COVID-19 changes:

As we are based in NYC, we have been working remotely since March. We’ve set up systems to ensure that our staff members are able to work as comfortably as possible. We use Slack to facilitate communication and, like just about everyone, use Zoom on a daily basis to meet. Core staff, including interns, participate in short daily huddles to coordinate work and stay connected. Staff members are provided with stipends to set up their home workspace and also to cover expenses associated with working from home. Staff members were also provided with 80 additional hours of flexible “Pandemic Paid Time Off” to use to take care of themselves during this unprecedented time.
