TransActive Gender Center Education Intern will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in developing educational materials, helping to create trainings, participating in community outreach and advocating on behalf of transgender and gender diverse children, youth and their families. The Education Intern must have a strong commitment to social justice, equality and civil rights related to transgender and gender diverse community. This internship is supervised by the Education Program Manager.
The intern will learn the formal & informal policies, procedures, and practices necessary to conduct day-to-day operation of the Education program at the Center.
The intern carries out routine duties and responsibilities under manager supervision. They make decisions and establish work priorities on essentially procedure-oriented operations. They must be detail-oriented, self-starting and have strong interpersonal skills.
The intern does not direct the activities or function of staff, interns or volunteers.
The intern is responsible at times for contacting advocacy clients, and engaging with schools and institutions interested in training. Good communication skills (including phone skills) are important. The intern must be able to be respectful, professional, and have the ability to work with transgender, gender diverse, and cisgender individuals. Ability to problem-solve and self-direct without constant supervision is essential.
Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply.
The intern must have experience in a professional office setting, as well as above average writing, research, organizational, and computer skills. Six months work experience required. Because of the work TransActive Gender Center does on behalf of transgender and gender diverse children, youth and their families, a background in this area (or familiarity with related issues), legal or otherwise, will greatly strengthen the application.
This description is a general statement of required major duties and responsibilities performed on a regular and continuous basis. It does not exclude other duties as assigned.
