The Guilford Green Foundation & LGBTQ Center unites and strengthens the greater Greensboro community by supporting and elevating our LGBTQ community.
We do this by operating the LGBTQ Center where we host programs and initiatives that advance our mission, and by providing financial support for other nonprofits working with LGBTQ people.
Internships are primarily focused on program management, event planning, and fundraising. Most interns work on programming at the center and provide general support to center guests. Previous interns have planned and led programming for LGBTQ youth and seniors, managed our transgender clothing closet, organized name change clinics, and expanded our community resource directory.
We plan to introduce more outdoor programming for LGBTQ people in 2021. While it is not required, interns with an interest in outdoor recreation (camping, hiking, kayaking, etc.) are encouraged to apply for this summer internship. Interns working on the outdoors program would be responsible for planning and leading outdoor activities.
Interns interested in developing their fundraising skills will have the opportunity to work on annual giving campaigns, assist with grant research and grant writing, and learn about donor data management systems.
All interns will practice basic workplace skills including guest and donor communication (in-writing and in-person), and planning, scheduling, and following up on activities relevant to their role.
