Note: Inquiries in advance about interning over winter break or spring semester 2014 are welcome.
Learning Life is a non-profit educational project based in Alexandria, VA, in the Washington D.C. metro area, and a program of United Charitable Programs, a registered 501(c)(3) public charity. Learning Life seeks to inform and empower more people by spreading knowledge on the surfaces of everyday life – like volunteer and employment opportunities on tabletop tents in school cafeterias, health and safety facts on posters in public bathrooms and laundromats, poetry and philosophy on cup sleeves in cafes and coasters in bars, science and history on napkins and cereal boxes, etc. – then connecting these surfaces to a world of learning here at Learning Life’s website.
At Learning Life, we work for a world where learning happens in everyday life, not just in school, a world with less inequality and more empowered people because knowledge is everywhere, fun and rewarding. We are looking for motivated volunteer and interns who want to help us build this better world.
ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP
Learning Life is now recruiting responsible, motivated graduate and undergraduate students to help with a variety of tasks including academic and market research, quiz development on a variety of topics, website, design and social media work, and assisting with pilot educational projects.
No experience necessary. Each intern’s precise work will depend on their personal interest, experience and skill as well as organizational need.
Interns must commit at least four hours per week, all or most of which time will be spent working directly with Learning Life founder, Dr. Paul Lachelier, and other interns at a regular time and day each week. Interns are also expected to participate in once-monthly Learning Life staff meetings via Skype, phone conference, or face-to-face.
The internship is unpaid, but available for credit or non-credit, as the intern prefers. Credit interns must secure a sponsoring professor then fulfill whatever academic requirements that professor expects for the course credit. Besides course credit, interns and volunteers alike can gain resume-building experience and a formal reference and/or recommendation letter given satisfactory performance.
