Street Law is seeking a college student to serve as a Programs & Events Summer Intern for summer 2018. A primary responsibility of this position will be preparing for the 2018 Supreme Court Summer Institute for Teachers. The intern will also complete research, writing, and administrative tasks for other Street Law programs as needed. The intern will be supervised by Street Law's program coordinator.
The intern’s duties will include:
- Editing, preparing, and assembling participant materials
- Assisting with event planning and coordinating logistics
- Attending the Institute and providing on-site logistical support
- Researching current Supreme Court cases
- Helping to prepare funding proposals
- Reviewing website content for accuracy
- Helping with a variety of projects in the Street Law office (may include Street Law’s Legal Diversity Pipeline Programs, Global Law and Democracy Programs, and/or other Teacher Professional Development Programs and may be tailored to match your specific interests)
- Attention to detail in proofreading and editing documents
- Strong work ethic
- Proficiency in using Microsoft products, especially MS Word and MS Excel
- A positive can-do attitude and a consistent customer service mentality
- Able to quickly and calmly troubleshoot and problem-solve at a moment's notice
Though this is an unpaid internship, we’re happy to provide support and documentation for students earning credit for this internship. A modest transportation stipend will also be provided. Other benefits will include the opportunity to attend the 2018 Supreme Court Summer Institute (including a private reception at the Supreme Court), as well as gaining experience with event planning, researching about legal issues, and general nonprofit operations.
The intern must be available to start in late May and the internship ends in mid-to-late July. We expect the intern to commit 25 to 30 hours a week, but fewer hours are negotiable. Street Law’s office is located in downtown Silver Spring, a short walk from the Metro stop.
