The American Diabetes Association is looking for interns who are passionate about helping those living with diabetes.
Diabetes Clubhouse is a camp for children ages 4-7 who have been diagnosed with diabetes. Clubhouse is aimed to help children to learn about their disease, learn how to take care of their bodies and have fun while meeting other children living with diabetes.
Another event includes an annual summer social where families living with diabetes are encouraged to mingle with other families living with the disease.
The next big event at the American Diabetes Association is our 5k walk/run called, “Step Out: Walk to STOP Diabetes.” This is a fundraising event which raises around $100,000 each year.
While doing an internship at the ADA, you will be asked to perform functions like; organizing volunteers, obtaining donations from local companies for events, helping plan events, visiting senior centers to discuss events, meeting with potential event sponsors, meeting with local ADA staff to brainstorm ways to improve the lives of those living with diabetes and several other tasks which will give you real life experience into the non-profit world, as well as a great reference for your resume. We are looking for a part-time intern who is able to be in the office 15-20 hours a week. Our schedule is very flexible in order to accommodate your work/school priorities. We are located in Salt Lake at 4424 South 700 East.
