Event Planning Internship

EqualityMaine has a robust calendar of events planned throughout the state over the course of the year.  We use events (both small and large scale) to engage our members with the organization and raise money to support our work. The intern will have the opportunity to be engaged in all aspects of the planning of the organization’s events.  Events include house parties, community meet and greet receptions, the Great Pumpkin Ball, a holiday cocktail reception, pride events and our annual Gala and Silent Auction. The intern will work directly with the Development Director and various planning committees on programming, budgeting, sponsorships, logistics, marketing and sales and volunteer management.

Requirements: We are seeking enthusiastic interns who are passionate about our mission and possess the following attributes:

  • Interest in social justice and politics
  • Detail-oriented, organized, and computer-literate
  • Strong written and verbal communications skills
  • Ability to work both as part of a team and independently
  • Experience working with youth and adults
  • Dependable and responsible
  • Demonstrated experience/knowledge related to the internship(s) for which you are applying.

Time requirements: Schedules can be flexible, but interns should be available at least 8-10 hours per week in our Portland office, with some occasional evening and weekend hours. We strongly encourage interns to arrange course credit from their school if possible. Internships are not paid positions. All interns will be encouraged to create a portfolio project over the course of their internship.

To apply:  Send a cover letter and resume to Christopher O’Connor, Development Director at coconnor@equalitymaine.org.
