Our friends at VegFund have a unique and enticing opening for a part-time intern. For those of you who contact us asking how you can get involved with animal advocacy, learn from the best, and still manage your busy schedule, all at the same time, this might be just what you have been looking for. VegFund, of course, funds and supports outreach activities, all with the overarching goal of creating a “compassionate world where all people embrace a vegan way of life.” They are the generous supporters behind over 1,700 vegan outreach projects in the US, Canada, Mexico, Japan, UK, Australia, India, Africa, and South America, and the grants they offer, and projects they organize, allow activists to spread compassion through tactics such as feed-ins and video outreach. Talk about changing the world…
Now, with this part-time, work-from-home volunteer position (roughly 15-20 hours per week), you can have the opportunity to work with this groundbreaking organization, which was named the “Non-Profit of the Year” in 2009 by VegNews Magazine. Among other duties, the internship gives you the chance to train and coordinate volunteers, maintain and grow VegFund’s resources for grassroots activists, and conduct at least one outreach event per month. You’ll be working with and learning from VegFund’s Director, and for those of you who are students, you might even be able to get class credit. Their ideal candidate for this 3-month position has grassroots experience, strong writing skills, and, obviously, a passion and interest in farmed animal advocacy.
Check out the full listing for this internship, and spread the word to your passionate vegan friends and colleagues.
Internships can, needless to say, be important inroads for those interested in pursuing a career in animal rights. Most people working in the movement had, at one time or another, an internship position. But even for those of you who don’t want to quit your day job, opportunities like this one can utilize your skills and passion, allowing you to grow and learn, all while strongly and effectively working to change the world for animals. I honestly can’t think of many better places to start — or step up — your AR journey, than to work with the visionaries behind VegFund. Have I mentioned I’m a fan?
And head’s up: Stay tuned for a not-to-be-missed interview with VegFund’s co-founder, Zia Terhune, which you will be able to find on our podcast in the coming weeks.
