Foundation Beyond Belief seeks 2014 Spring Interns
Foundation Beyond Belief is looking for volunteer interns to join their fun and welcoming staff between January 2014 and August 2014. Interns are a vital part of their organizational structure, and each intern plays an important role in helping to build what is still a new and quickly growing charity. FBB volunteer interns commit to work 8-10 hours per week depending on their specific role, and can complete their tasks from anywhere with an Internet connection.
The FBB volunteer internship is a great position for students looking to build their resumes, as well as for non-students who want to get involved in charity work and humanism. The internship will not only provide useful experience, but will also enable you to live out your humanism and make an impact on the world. Past interns have found the experience a unique opportunity to match their values with the chance to foster skills in management and communication. Many have enjoyed their time at FBB so much that they have stayed on as staff when positions have been available.
Complete applications should include a letter of interest, resume or CV, and three professional (work, volunteer, or school) references who can be contacted via e-mail. Candidates should carefully review and incorporate the requirements of their preferred role into their application materials.
Cover letters can be addressed to Noelle George, director of operations, and any questions can be sent to [email protected]. Do not e-mail your application—to submit your application materials, use the online form. The application deadline is December 8th.

The Chief Operating Officer will have day-to-to management and operational responsibilities and will be charged with professionalizing operations throughout the entire organization. The ideal candidate will have deep and successful management experience evidencing the capacity to grow the HCH (and its HCP) into an effective organization serving the needs of its customers in the nationwide Freethought/Humanist community.
