Corporate Accountability stops transnational corporations from devastating democracy, perpetuating systemic racism, trampling human rights, and destroying our planet. We are building a world rooted in justice where corporations answer to people, not the other way around — a world where every person has access to clean water, healthy food, a safe place to live, and the opportunity to reach their full human potential.
We are deeply committed to prioritizing the leadership of those who bear the brunt of corporate abuse: women, people of color, nonbinary people, low-income people, people in the Global South, LGBTQ+ and disabled folks around the world. Therefore folks holding these identities are strongly encouraged to apply for our internships program.
Our internships are a unique opportunity for you to gain valuable corporate campaigning and nonprofit experience, cultivate your interests in social justice, strengthen your understanding of a fast-paced campaign organization, and gain critical skills and experience. In the Summer 2023 Development Internship, you will intern alongside our dynamic, passionate development team and learn skills such as data management, how to use Salesforce, and so much more! Interns will come away from the experience ready to take action and apply these skills to the social change issues they want to address in their local communities or schools. Additionally, all interns will have the opportunity to join our Intern Alumni Network. This is a closed group of former Corporate Accountability interns, where information about job opportunities, skills development (such as resume and cover letter writing), and ways to take action will be shared.
As the Development Intern, you will work with our team of fundraisers and membership outreach staff as they organize and engage our donors across the country in support of our campaigns. You will also help set up the majors team as they enter a new fiscal year, getting the team ready to delve into fundraising tactics.
