YOU: Enthusiastic, passionate, sharp, and responsible. You are familiar with fundraising and the nonprofit sector and you’re psyched to learn even more. You are just as confident in writing your own content as you are writing content for others. You’re a quick learner overflowing with self-initiative, and you’d rather work with a team than on your own. You aren’t afraid to ask questions or say, “I don’t have the answer, but here’s what my gut says.” You seek to validate these instincts through research and an openness to others’ feedback. You can see the big picture and translate that high-level view into granular details. You can roll with detailed instructions, but are flexible enough to chart your own course.
US: Passionate expressers of authenticity, idealism, courage, inclusivity, and love. These are our values and we are committed to walking the talk. Hope needs help – our help. We believe the world has plenty for everyone – to do, to learn, to believe in, to enjoy, and to offer. We exist to connect, support, and inspire idealists to create massive positive change. We leave the world better than we found it, build networks of dreamers who do, and live the life we’ve imagined. We know that there is a lot of work to do to realize this vision and we love that we get to do it together. We focus our efforts on fundraising, strategy, leadership and wellbeing as we help transform individuals and organizations through our consulting offerings and idealist community. We think with our heads and feel with our hearts, and we act with confidence, co-creation and compassion. We’re idealists, leaders, change-makers and doers. We are Plenty.
THE WORK: The Consulting Intern will support Plenty’s vision and initiatives by assisting with client projects and supporting the consulting team through:
