CHP-SBCC Request for Interns
CHP-South Berkshire Community Coalition is a catalyst for substance abuse prevention across all of South Berkshire County. SBYC reduces youth substance abuse by finding solutions to the environmental factors that lead youth to use alcohol and other drugs and by promoting factors that decrease the likelihood of substance abuse. According to this view, individuals do not engage in substance abuse solely on the basis of personal characteristics, but rather as the result of a complex set of factors in their environment. Prevention, if it is to prove effective, must exist in all areas of community life.
We are looking for interns with an interest in coalition building, substance abuse prevention and/or public health. Prior experience in these areas is not required, but is helpful. Candidates should be proficient in Microsoft Office applications, be willing/able to handle administrative tasks (photocopying, faxing, answering phones and Emails, etc), ask questions and take initiative when not given specific directions. Individuals who are good at building/maintaining relationships will be given priority.
By the end of their internship, candidates will be more familiar with some or all of the following: grant writing, federal guidelines, substance abuse prevention strategies, coalition building, Microsoft Office Suite applications, community organizing, event planning and oral and written reporting and the public health model.

Paid Editorial Internship at MoveOn
MoveOn.org Civic Action is looking for a couple of fiercely intelligent, hard-working, impressively creative Editorial Interns to help launch an exciting “future of media” project at MoveOn.
Right-wing spin is drowning out the truth. Fox News is bullying the rest of the media into submission. Fewer Americans believe that climate change is real every day. Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin drive our national media narratives.
We have a plan to make sure that progressive messages get out online, but we need smart people to help us make it happen. The effort is led by former senior staff at MoveOn and The Onion; by joining on the ground floor, you can also help shape it from the beginning.
Editorial Interns will be involved in many aspects of the project, from helping to curate content to managing the front page to developing the editorial voice of the enterprise. You’ll work directly with the project’s leaders. You’ll never have to get us coffee, but you should be ready and willing to work hard to make the project’s vision a reality.
- Great writing ability
- Deep understanding of social media—if you have a blog or Twitter feed or Tumblr with a dedicated following, that’s a good sign.
- Basic HTML and photo-manipulation skills. User experience, graphic design, and programming chops are all big plusses.
- Ability to manage complex projects and hit deadlines.
- Self-manager and self-starter.
- Early riser—a lot of the key work will happen in the morning.
- A sense of humor.
Location: Anywhere. We have a virtual office, and collaborate online.
Stipend: $1,000 to 1,500 a month, based on experience, plus health benefits.
Start Date: As soon as possible
End Date: May 1, 2011 (but may be extended indefinitely if it works out).
If you’re interested: Please send a cover letter, writing sample, link to something amazing you’ve seen online lately, and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. MoveOn is an equal opportunity employer.
