Fundacion Caminando Juntos (United Way Argentina) (IIP-IN Argentina, Puentes Abroad)
About: Fundacion Caminando Juntos is an Argentine civil society organization dedicated to the development of social investment projects in the areas of children’s education, children’s health, and youth employability in the most economically vulnerable communities. Since its origin in 2008, it has been a part of the network of United Way Worldwide and has 30 ongoing projects in six provinces across Argentina, which aim to generate sustainable social change through cooperation between the government, the private sector, and the communities of Argentina.
Intern Responsibilities: The IIP intern will have the opportunity to conduct projects in research, fundraising, and/or communications. Research would be on best practices in community development programs, with a focus on children and youth, with the specific research project will be determined based on the intern's interest and the current organizational need. In the area of fundraising, the intern will research and identify possible grants available from international funding sources and then prepare and write grant proposals by working together the organization’s program directors. Finally, an intern in the communications area will create communications materials through an integrated strategy with social media, website content, and online marketing.
Qualifications: Ideal internship for students interested in public policy, community development, and children’s health and education. Research and fundraising projects could be in English, but communications work would need an advanced level of Spanish.
