The Institute for Nonprofit Innovation and Excellence (INIE) works to enhance the capacity and leadership of the nonprofit industry through advocacy, education and engagement.  INIE’s Nonprofit Management Volunteer Internship Program provides participants with an unparalleled opportunity to acquire administrative experience while gaining valuable insight into the nonprofit sector.  Interns will contribute to their own success by selecting a focal area for their internship at the outset (e.g. Communications, Research, Event Planning, Community Engagement, Membership, Development, or Management) and will then work with their Supervisor to develop a project upon which much of their time will be focused.  Additionally, all Interns will participate in INIE staff meetings and will be engaged in the day-to-day operations of the agency, allowing for enormous personal and professional growth.
