Community Alliance for Global Justice – Internship Opportunity

Summer Internships Available with Community Alliance for Global Justice

Community Alliance for Global Justice is currently seeking Food Justice Event Interns for Summer 2018. We are happy to work with students to fulfill requirements for academic credit. Time-frame flexible. Potential volunteers also welcomed to get involved! We require a minimum of 5 hours per week.

To apply, please send an introductory email explaining your interest and availability to Mollie at slee@cagj.org. Thank you!

Community Alliance for Global Justice (CAGJ) is a Seattle-based, grassroots, volunteer-run organization whose mission is to strengthen the global food sovereignty movement.

CAGJ’s 12th annual Strengthening Local EconomiesEverywhere! (SLEE!) Dinner will take place on September 29th, 2018 at the University Christian Church in Seattle’s University District.

SLEE! is much more than a delicious, locally sourced, Fair Trade meal, it is a powerful community event where we inspire people to take action. Edgar Franks will deliver the keynote, “The Legacy We Inherit: Luchando por una Vida AgroEcológica,” reflecting on agroecology as a way of life. Edgar organizes farmworkers with Community to Community Development in Bellingham, WA.

Join our team of interns to contribute to the vision and make it even more spectacular than past years! Learn valuable skills in the areas of nonprofit development and fundraising, community engagement and outreach, communications, and event planning. The following positions are available. We also create political education opportunities for all interns and volunteers.

Dessert & Silent Auction Outreach and Coordinators: Contact supportive businesses, non-profit organizations and CAGJ members to solicit silent auction packages and dessert auction. Need to be able to make day-time calls. Coordinators organize all donations for the day of the event, working with a group of volunteers and interns.

Publicity: Help create promotional materials and conduct outreach to our Community Partners to publicize the event.

Food & Farm Outreach: Contact the many farmers, fisherfolks, creameries, wineries, breweries, and others who support CAGJ with their amazing goods to see if they can help out this year.

Table Captain Outreach: This essential role follows up with our valued CAGJ membership requesting that they become Table Captains to provide an extra level of financial support at our dinner.
