Internship description: 

There are several areas of focus that you can choose from in our internship program: social media, events and organizing, and outreach.

The intern will be working with staff and youth to create a dialogue through vlogs, blogs, photos and facts on comprehensive sexuality education on Facebook, Flickr and Twitter accounts.

Events and Organizing projects include organizing and communicating with individuals for community events and cafecitos. Cafecitos are community meetings on topical issues affecting the community, such as access to health care and continued cuts to education. We have many community partners, and are frequently working with organizations to organize meetings, events and plan community actions. Interns will be responsible to recruit and train volunteers, as well as plan and execute community engagement events to increase membership and community investment in reproductive justice issues! This is COLOR's 19th anniversary and we will be holding a birthday party version of an annual fundraising event, Viva La Diva. The intern will have the opportunity to support planning and fundraising for the event, as well as being a part of other 19 year anniversary activities.

Outreach: As a purple state, we frequently see radical attacks on choice, LGBT folks, and immigrants. This intern will have the opportunity to participate in post-2016 legislative session work and planning for the 2017 legislative session. Other outreach and organizing duties as assigned.
