Project and Workshop Development Support Intern
Resilient Communities (RC) is a registered 501(c)(3) NGO operating in Morocco focused on community engagement activities, capacity building workshops and trainings, and developing waste reuse solutions for Moroccan communities.
Due to the recent international barriers caused by the COV-19 pandemic and your university’s guidelines, RC has developed a scope of work to provide you with a remote internship that is still challenging, rewarding, and beneficial for both your education and career.
Interns will assist RC in the research and development of projects agreed upon between RC and the interns themselves. The deliverables of the internship include, but are not limited to, designing a workshop, providing project research and support, preparing project proposals, and writing three short articles for online publication.
As an intern, you will employ your skills to work independently and in teams with fellow interns with supervision from RC staff. The list of current and pipeline projects and programs will be provided and discussed when an interview is scheduled. The position will require a commitment of 5-15 hours a week. The position is unpaid.
Once the candidate is selected, the Resilient Communities’ team will meet with the intern to discuss the intern’s passions and goals and how they can be applied to the phases outlined below, and also the overall timeline of the internship. Interns will draft an article at the end of each phase summarizing what knowledge and skills were gained. The articles will be published to the blog Medium and to the Resilient Communities’ website.
i. On-boarding: The internship will begin with a dialogue about the provided task list and the expectations from all parties. The details of the projects and the internship deliverables will be discussed and determined.
ii. Phase I - Workshop: The first phase will include a training on how to create an effective workshop followed by the creation of a workshop of your choice, led by our Head of Training and Development, N.G. Rees. An article will be written on a topic related to the phase and agreed upon between the intern and RC staff.
iii. Phase II - Research: Perform research on current ongoing and future projects. Drafting and publication of an article.
iv. Phase III - Proposal Development: Specific documents to be prepared will be clarified in relation to the current and/or ongoing project proposals. Drafting and publication of an article.
v. Outcome: Resilient Communities ensures the intern reaches the predetermined internship outcome and receives feedback on their experience.
Interns will be in constant contact with the RC staff via Slack as well as partaking in Zoom meetings to monitor progress. Please send your CV and a cover letter expressing your interest in the internship.
