MIRA is looking for a passionate and detail-oriented intern to work closely with our Organizing Team. This is a great opportunity to gain exposure to all aspects of community organizing and coalition-building: winter/spring interns will support Immigrants’ Day at the State House, the largest immigrant-led annual day of action in Massachusetts, among other activities; fall interns will support our annual MIRA Members Meeting, which brings together advocates from all across the state to set our agenda for the coming year.
Organizing interns also help manage data across Mailchimp and Kindful for MIRA’s 143+ coalition of member organizations, and supporting meetings, trainings and other grassroots events with our members across the Commonwealth.
You will join a close-knit, warm and enthusiastic team, get to know every aspect of our work, and meet lots of great people.
Ideal candidates are:
- Experienced in community or student organizing
- College seniors, graduate students, or recent college grads looking for hands-on experience
- Excellent with people, in person, by phone and in writing; always kind and engaging
- Motivated, enthusiastic, and happy to come up with ideas or take a project and run with it
We strongly encourage immigrants, refugees and first-generation Americans to apply. This internship is unpaid, but we will gladly work with you to ensure you can earn college credit. Start dates are flexible.
To apply, please email Sarang Sekhavat. Please include a cover note explaining why you’d like this internship, what you hope to get out of it, and why you’re a good fit based on the list above; your résumé.
