Do you want to make a difference in your community? Volunteering is an excellent way to do just that. The City of Austin offers volunteer opportunities that support city services and programs, and contribute to the quality of life in Austin. Applications for volunteers open three times a year, and if you are selected, you will serve as a “volunteer in training” for 10 weeks. To be eligible, you must be at least 16 years old. Are you currently a student? You may be interested in interning at the Austin office of the EJC.
This organization helps refugee clients find employment and achieve self-sufficiency in the United States. Interns can assist with job applications, job interviews, transportation to medical appointments, setting up apartments, and more. Plus, interns receive a monthly stipend to cover parking and transportation costs. The Communications Department of Visit Austin is another great place to intern. This department transmits messages about Austin and Visit Austin to the press and hospitality industry.
It also generates high-impact revenues for hotels in the Austin region and secures businesses throughout the city. The Colorado intern will also establish relationships with the Dallas community and invite community leaders to present and share information during the workshops. The Austin Science and Nature Center is looking for gardening volunteers. This position requires an interest in gardening and outdoor maintenance, as well as the ability to crouch, kneel, and lift up to 35 pounds. Volunteers help visitors identify objects they find in nature, award them points, and exchange them for other objects. We want to thank all of the staff members, volunteers, donors, and community partners who have done so much to help vulnerable people find safety for themselves and their families in Texas. If you're looking for a way to make a difference in your community, consider volunteering or interning in Austin, Texas.
You'll gain valuable experience while helping those in need.
