The Philadelphia Parks Alliance is looking for energetic and passionate
interns for the 2016-2017 school year. Founded in 1984, the Parks
Alliance is the voice of Philadelphia’s parks and recreation
users—advocating for and supporting one of the largest urban recreation
systems in the country. We want to make Philadelphia a healthy, vibrant,
and sustainable city for all.
The Parks Alliance is a fast-paced and lively 501(c)(3) non-profit that
welcomes big ideas and big personalities at our West Philadelphia
office. Our work is collaborative by nature and empowering by design.
The Parks Alliance is a place for people looking for real responsibility
and impact– not grabbing coffee or making copies.
Internships with the Parks Alliance are unpaid, but we can promise a
rewarding experience doing work that matters. During their tenure with
our organization, interns will divide their time between one or more
long-term projects in addition to day-to-day work.
Our work is varied, and we currently have projects in advocacy,
journalism, fundraising, photojournalism, marketing, communications,
program management, sustainability, law, research, public policy,
graphic design, urban design, GIS analysis, and community outreach.
If you are interested in working with us, please send a cover letter and
resume to Olivia Ortiz at firstname.lastname@example.org

215-879-8159. We accept applications on a rolling basis.
