Internships

BOA-EMT Internship Program

We are currently seeking two interns to support our Content Development and Business Development operations! While these internships are currently unpaid, BOA-EMT can provide mentorship and professional development, connections with high-leverage partners in the Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance Profession, a letter of recommendation, and potentially academic credit. 1:1 meetings will be conducted at Boston University.

We are looking for two highly energetic individuals with an interest in international affairs, climate change, social entrepreneurship, or humanitarian issues. Commitment is 5-8 hours per week, flexible, and location independent. Our interns will also have opportunities to participate in our meetings with partner agencies as they become available, including community meetings or public presentations. We are looking to onboard our first interns by Nov 2018 and have them support our work through May 2019.

Content Development Intern – research the latest stories on climate change and humanitarian affairs. Add to BOA-EMT’s Instapaper account and highlight key take-aways. Integrate these findings into BOA-EMT instructor guides and PowerPoint presentations, as well as our Social Media accounts. We have immediate needs to focus on the impact of climate change on public and mental health, as well as emerging trends in global disaster management and humanitarian assistance. Great for aspiring international analysts and public information officers!

Business Development Intern – Support our Directors by establishing a foothold in the progressive and dynamic New England market for climate change and resilience. Research key players, mind map how BOA-EMT’s unique grants and analysis expertise fits into a complex network, and help us plan our sales pipeline and high-leverage engagements. Great for aspiring social entrepreneurs and consultants!

To apply – please e-mail your resume and a brief cover letter to: boa.emt.directors@gmail.com. In the subject line, please indicate “ATTN: Content Development Intern” or “ATTN: Business Development Intern.” We plan to screen applications and conduct interviews in November 2018, with the objective to onboard in the same month.
