ONETrack International is a Boston-based 501c3 charity organization that takes orphaned children from the Republic of Cameroon out of their orphanages and places them in the households of surviving family members in West Africa. ONETrack is currently practicing our Transition to Home orphan-care approach developed by CameroonONE in Cameroon, The Gambia, Cambodia, Kosovo and Zimbabwe; in Liberia with orphans affected by the Ebola epidemic; in Honduras with communities affected by the “Migrant Caravan” crisis; in Greece with Yazidi refugees; and, is in talks to expand other regions in 2020. We are looking for interns for the Fall and Spring semesters to help raise additional funding for our sponsorship program’s operational budget (to provide education, healthcare needs and identification support to our students; a stipend to their caretakers; as well as funding projects in progress- sustainability projects, such as bee-farming, and children’s centers and child safe zones for the villages’ children).
These internship opportunities will provide qualified applicants with substantial experience in nonprofit fundraising and development through events planning, donor cultivation, solicitation strategizing, and a fundamental knowledge of Nonprofit Management and program implementation and expansion. Each intern will be encouraged to take a leadership role in spearheading their own fundraising campaigns within the objectives of the development department, depending on one’s experience and hours of availability.

Applicants should be pursuing a Bachelor or Masters Degree in a relevant field (Marketing, Government, Public Policy, etc) or recent graduates, who possess excellent communication skills, and are qualified to represent the organization. Should be open-minded, enthusiastic, creative, and adaptable.
