Infidelity Counseling Network Seeks Intern for Grant Research & Writing
Infidelity Counseling Network
PO Box 2
Menlo Park, CA
---Job Description/Position Objectives---
We are seeking a student (graduate or undergraduate; male or female) to research grant opportunities and write grant applications for our small nonprofit, in order to fund our work for the coming year. We are a grass-roots organization established fall 2011; our mission is to provide free, one-to-one, confidential peer counseling to women coping with their husband's/partner's infidelity. We are comprised of volunteer board members and volunteer peer counselors, all based on the Peninsula; however, we serve women nationwide.
The intern would work from his/her own home or office on his/her own schedule; this job would require approximately a 3-hr commitment per week between June and September.
No prior knowledge of counseling, infidelity, or relationships is necessary. Ideally the student intern would have some experience in the world of grant-seeking and nonprofits; however, we believe that any intelligent, capable, curious, organized, and determined individual could do this job. Above all, the intern must be organized, so that when he/she is done with our organization we are left with accurate records of what has been done. We are seeking small grants, under $500 total, and because we are an unusual topic ("healing from infidelity") the intern will have to be creative in finding niche grants that are a fit; we do not wish to seek grants from faith-based organizations, however, as our work is neither to promote marriage or divorce - our trained peer counselors work one-on-one with each woman, by phone, to help her survive the trauma of infidelity, whereever that path may take her.
