The Kulanu Internship Program
Kulanu ("All of Us" in Hebrew), founded in 1994, is a non-profit organization that supports isolated, emerging, and returning Jewish communities around the world in their desire to learn more about Judaism and connect with other Jewish communities. Kulanu raises awareness and support for these communities - many of whom have long been disconnected from the worldwide Jewish community - through education, research, networking, fundraising, and media about their histories and traditions. Our connections help 'all of us' enrich our Jewish lives.
We are a nearly all-volunteer organization, with just two part-time staff members assisting scores of volunteers and community members who are making things happen in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. As we grow and expand, we are seeking committed interns to help us reach the next phase of our development.
Kulanu's needs evolve as new communities and new projects emerge, so as a Kulanu intern you will always be doing something different, and working with people in different parts of the world! Here are some of our summer 2016 intern projects:
- Help book speaking tour events
- Coordinate Kulanu Watch Parties and social gatherings
- Digital media and communications / social networking / blogging
- Manage our photos and videos
- Set up and maintain instagram account
- Sell Kulanu community merchandise at public events, or offer them to museum stores and others
- Take our overseas visitors sightseeing or accompany them to meetings
- Write op-ed articles about Kulanu
- Promote the Kulanu Mitzvah Program to bar/bat mitzvah students and social action / tzedekah groups
- Support individual Kulanu board members, advisors, regional coordinators, or committee members
- Occasionally help the office staff with various administrative tasks
As part of the program, interns will participate in bi-weekly meetings to report on progress, get updates, ask questions, and learn about our communities. Our board members, activists, and other leaders, including members of our Jewish communities in Africa and Latin America, will be part of these meetings, too!
Interns will be assigned a “mentor” and a partner or team to work together to complete projects.
Each intern who completes the program will receive a reference letter and a certificate.
Basic requirements include:
- A minimum three (3) month commitment (see dates below);
- A minimum of ten (10) hours each week, including a bi-weekly meeting which will either be on Wednesdays via Skype or Google Hangout;
- The ability to work virtually -- i.e., access to a phone and a computer with internet -- for the full time commitment; and,
- Completion of the application form and submission of a resume/CV or a link to a relevant online profile.
The ideal Kulanu Intern will have an interest in supporting Jewish communities around the world, and an eagerness to learn new things.
Kulanu Summer Internship Program 2016
The summer program will run from June 1 to August 30 (we can be flexible on these dates). As the Kulanu office has limited space, we can only accept interns who can work virtually.
If you or someone you know is interested in participating, please complete and submit the form below, and send your resume/CV to volunteers at kulanu dot org by May 31 for the summer program. Thank you!
Thank you for considering the Kulanu Internship Program! We look forward to receiving your application.
Please also share this opportunity with your networks, and with anyone you know who is seeking an internship program. Thanks so much!
