Manhattan OR Remote / Virtual / Work from Home
Many students, recent graduates, and professionals have lost (or been unable to find) internships or jobs due to COVID-19. We feel so bad for all those who have been impacted in that way.
While we cannot pay, our nonprofit does offer an outstanding opportunity to use your skills, gain experience, enhance your resume, and make a tremendous positive social impact on the causes or communities you care about, including Cancer.
This may be the single best opportunity for you to make the greatest possible positive impact in the world.
Who Is It For?
We have many roles to fill here, so we need high-achieving interns and volunteers with a range of experience. We therefore welcome:
- Professionals who want to volunteer part-time
- "Dependent Spouses" of H1-B, F1, and L1 visa holders
- Recent graduates, including international students on OPT
- Undergraduate and graduate school students, including international students on CPT, who want to intern or to join us as a school ambassador
- Outstanding high school students, who want to intern or to join us as a school ambassador
Credit for Students
Internships with ChangingThePresent are eligible for credit from many schools, and we are happy to do our part to meet the school's requirements.
We are always hiring: school year or summer; full-time or part-time.
ChangingThePresent.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. The New York Times called us an “Amazon.com of the nonprofit world.”
We make the experience of a donation, which you can give in a friend’s name, feel like a rewarding present and an appealing alternative to buying and giving yet more unwanted "stuff." In this way, we are starting to channel to nonprofits some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year buying birthday, wedding, holiday, and corporate presents. Imagine how much good we could all do together as more of that money goes to making a difference.
- Our visitors can contribute to provide school children with their first book, preserve an acre of the wilderness, fund an hour of cancer research, etc.
- Wish lists and registries let them share their dreams for a better world.
- Personalized greeting cards make a charitable gift especially memorable. Gift cards let friends support the things they care about.
We already work with hundreds of the most prestigious nonprofits in the country, and we are now opening the site to all nonprofits so they can all attract additional funding for their important missions.
Unprecedented Opportunities for Responsibility and Leadership
Our interns and volunteers get more responsibility than they would anywhere else. You can take a leadership role.
