Internship/Apprenticeship at The Children’s Campaign

The Children’s Campaign is searching for hardworking, motivated full-time college students (preferably IT, ICT, MIS, and computer science majors) to join our internship program called The Apprenticeship Center. Right now, we are especially interested in students who want to help rebuild and maintain our websites and have experience with WordPress or similar software. Knowledge of HTML is a bonus. To qualify for our program, you must be able to work 15-20 hours per week for at least two consecutive semesters.  Note that this is an unpaid position, but many apprentices receive course credit for their work with us.

While this internship will be operated through a virtual environment over the summer, leadership and staff are committed to delivering unique workforce development experiences for all Apprentices (what we call our interns). While nothing can replace face-to-face experiences, we have worked hard to perfect our virtual connections with our Apprentices. Trainings, project plan reviews, meetings, and supervision will be conducted through Zoom. Check-ins with our Apprentices occur daily. Our goal is to ensure that every Apprentice feels connected and valued.

Opportunities for Tech Apprentices include, but are not limited to:

  • Developing and maintaining webpages on WordPress CMS using HTML
  • Installing, configuring, and maintaining computer software and hardware
  • Troubleshooting network, server, software, and hardware issues
  • Analyzing web performance and provide insights and trends using Google Analytics
  • Writing and editing technical documentation, such as operational and instructional manuals

Come gain meaningful experiences that will help you advance your career and academic opportunities. Our apprenticeship program is designed so that all students:

  • Develop leadership skills by leading meetings and spearheading at least one project
  • Build their portfolio of real-life work samples
  • Practice networking skills
  • Collaborate on cross-functional projects that involve the communications, technology, public policy, and business development teams to gain a holistic understanding of the interworking of a nonprofit
