Fall 2017

Position: Nonprofit Relations Intern
Student: Geography and American Studies Senior

The name for the Nonprofit Relations Intern position at I Live Here I Give Here describes the role fairly well. While this role has a lot of flexibility (it really becomes what you make it), the main responsibilities are aimed at assisting I Live Here I Give Here staff maintain and foster relationships with the nearly 800 nonprofits who participate in Amplify Austin.

I Live Here I Give Here (ILHIGH) rents office space at the Livestrong Headquarters on East 6th Street, about 3 miles from campus. As you’d expect, the building is amazing. Though the ILHIGH team is small, they are all incredibly kind, friendly, and funny. Each of them is excited to help you grow professionally and as a person.

Day-to-day tasks include managing nonprofit accounts on the AmplifyATX site, developing tools and materials to assist and guide fundraising efforts, and doing odd-jobs here and there for the ILHIGH team.

Interning at ILHIGH is an excellent experience for anyone who wants to eventually work for a nonprofit. I have learned a tremendous amount about Austin nonprofits, fundraising, and nonprofit management. Working closely with so many different organizations of varying size and success is like a nonprofit crash-course.

Hours are extremely flexible, though I was generally working Tuesday mornings and all-day Fridays.
