Texas 4000 is a small Austin based non-profit dedicated to fighting cancer by spreading Hope, Knowledge, and Charity. Each year a group of University of Texas students raise money in this fight by riding their bikes from Austin, Texas to Anchorage, Alaska. During the ride, they stop to share their inspirational stories along with powerful life-saving information about cancer prevention to towns big and small. The Texas 4000 family is not only comprised of these students, but the countless individuals who support this cause, such as the board of directors, sponsors, grantees, host families, donors and volunteers.

We are currently looking for passionate individuals with eagerness to learn about and help an amazing cause. These five internship opportunities will directly support the Texas 4000 Fundraising and Special Events programs, activities and projects, as well as provide administrative support to all areas within the organization as needed.

No matter what position you apply for, we ask that you exhibit some of the following traits:
• Ability to learn quickly and apply common sense to detailed yet straightforward instructions
• Excellent organization, communication, writing and problem solving skills
• Proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
• Ability to multi-task and handle multiple projects while staying organized;
• Work well with our team of volunteers and riders or solo when needed
10-20 hours/week minimum desired. Internships will span from August 24th through December 4th, 2014 (exact dates flexible).

You will be responsible for developing and constructing a media coverage report for the 2014 summer ride. This will include researching media impressions for different outlets, compiling press links, and formatting and composing an attractive, concise report. Past experience with media impression research encouraged but not required. Attention to detail is a must.
