UWGLV Internships Job at United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley, Allentown, PA

  • United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley
  • Allentown, PA

Job Description

United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley is proud to support higher education internships and fellowships. We offer flexible options that can fit nearly any school requirement for credits and welcome interns who are structuring their own experience as well.

Our staff typically includes interns and fellows in the areas of community impact, fundraising and marketing, but we are able to offer experiences in general business, information technology, accounting and human resources as well. All of our internships and fellowships offer real world working experience designed to develop the individual's skills.

General Internship Information

  • Internships at UWGLV are available in most of our business areas year round. We are highly flexible with start and end dates for internships.
  • Open to individuals of any age over 14, in a formal educational program or not, who demonstrate they are developing new professional skills and would benefit from the opportunity to work and learn in our organization.
  • Will work on projects that go beyond that which the organization expected to accomplish with regular employees and which are not core to the achievement of the organization's mission.
  • An intern is expected to get as much from the work experience at UWGLV as UWGLV gets from the intern. The supervisor of an intern anticipates a "break-even" exchange of time invested in mentoring the intern versus work product contributed to the organization.
  • It is not the purpose or intention of this program to allow prospective employees to "work for free" to demonstrate their skill set or prove their suitability for employment.
  • May serve as an intern for no more than 1 year or no more than 950 hours.

DIVERSITY STATEMENT We believe that diversity of thought as well as cultural diversity of staff and volunteers strengthens United Way of Greater Lehigh Valley's ability to achieve its mission, vision, philosophy and values. United Way is committed to having a workforce and volunteer teams that reflect and celebrate the diversity of our community in all respects. Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals to perform the essential functions. United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley is an equal opportunity employer.
