The Philadelphia Parks Alliance is Hiring Interns!

The Philadelphia Parks Alliance is looking for energetic, skilled interns for 2017. 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 cultivate Philadelphia into becoming 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. We are committed to our “no coffee, no copies” internship policy–interns have real responsibility and do valuable work. These positions are unpaid, but we can promise a rewarding experience doing work that matters.

The Parks Alliance is currently seeking interns in the following areas:
~ Recreation Center Initiative (RCI). Through the RCI, the Parks Alliance supports and advocates for Philadelphia’s playgrounds, community centers, and recreation centers. Our interns are responsible for supporting the Parks Alliance’s outreach to recreation centers throughout Philadelphia. A normal week may include: collecting and entering recreation center data, attending a Recreation Advisory Council meeting, designing event posters, flyering neighborhoods for community events, and helping with the many day-to-day tasks our office encounters. There’s a lot going on inside and outside our office; we’re looking for individuals excited to stay in the office during the work
day as well as those ready to work in different parts of the city in the evening.

~ Development. Development is how nonprofits find funding, primarily through relational resources. We would love participants with a background in grant writing and/or fundraising to join us. But don’t fret, we are also looking for interns who are ready to learn the unique world of development and can help us with tasks ranging from donor research to board development.

~ GIS & Data Analytics. Our GIS and data analytics department analyzes data, writes reports, and distributes information related to parks and recreation in Philadelphia. We provide maps and statistics to City Council members, Recreation Center Advisory Councils, park advocacy groups, and other local organizations, and are working to publish them online for public use. In 2017, we are looking to hire interns that are both proficient in GIS and have strong writing skills.

~ Design. Decent infrastructure is essential for a sustainable city. We have a need for design students to analyze our public space infrastructure and produce alternate designs for buildings and parks based on the needs of the surrounding community. Experience required.

~ Public Policy. In the coming year, the Parks Alliance will advocate for a higher parks and recreation budget and publish materials on city and state policies that influence parks and recreation. We are looking for one driven intern with a strong writing background and knowledge of public policy to research and draft these materials. This intern will gain valuable experience working with advocacy and lobbying groups to develop the materials, which will be used statewide.

~ Urban Studies. Before starting a new community outreach project, we like to have a complete understanding of the surrounding neighborhood. Help us better serve our communities by researching the history of neighborhoods, explaining its development and social changes over time, and giving us valuable information on the current wants and needs of the community. The best applicants will be asked for a writing sample that shows their ability to pull narratives from research.

~ Communications. It’s 2016–social media and the internet are pivotal tools for any organization. Help us grow our online presence by managing our website and social media accounts. Prefer writing in sentences longer than 140 characters? We have a blog that could use your help, too! Experience required.

To apply: Email Olivia Ortiz – olivia@philaparks.org
<mailto:olivia@philaparks.org>- with your resume and a cover letter explaining why you want to work with us. Format your email title as ‘[area of application] Intern Application’. Example: Development Intern Application.
