As the only dual-language nonprofit in Rochester, IBERO has the unique ability to target multiple audiences in both English and Spanish. Through our three divisions of Children and Youth Services, Family Services, and Developmental Disabilities, we teach individuals of all backgrounds how to become self-sufficient. Through hands-on learning, we help children, youth, families and individuals with special needs, transition into the classroom, the workforce and the community.
The primary objective of our internship program is to provide students with hands-on experience in the fields of fundraising, public relations, marketing, event planning, volunteer coordination, research and other related areas. Interns will learn about our work as a human services agency, day-to-day operations, dual-language campaigns and events, strategies used to market our success stories for greater impact and results, how to establish new partnerships and collaborations and the importance of networking. Students will also have the opportunity to create, develop and execute their own strategies under the supervision of the director of development and communications. Upon completion of the internship, students can use this experience as a resume builder and request a reference and/or letter of recommendation.
The ideal intern must be able to get along well with others; use social media wisely when promoting IBERO, responsible and willing to learn.
