amaxa connects our users to real problems at global nonprofits. Our flagship program is the amaxa student impact program, a one-of-a-kind leadership program specifically designed for high school students. We have 11 nonprofit partners and counting, and our students are currently solving problems ranging from providing electricity to grandmothers in Uganda to creating juggling workshops for students in Palestine - & much more. Learn more about our program and problems at www.amaxaimpact.org. We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the United States.
While these roles are technically internships because they operate on a semester schedule, our interns are fully part of our team and take on a leadership role within our organization, and as such, we are not only open to, but prefer, candidates who see themselves playing a role in our organization in a longer-term, if possible. While the first semester is unpaid, if you continue with us more than one semester, the role will either become paid or we will provide a one-time stipend (this is simply dependent upon our funds moving forward).
Our operations consist of three main tiers: identifying nonprofit partners, recruiting undergraduate and professional mentors, and spreading the word about our program to high school students who want to make an impact. We are looking for undergraduates with a demonstrated passion for social good to join our team as Nonprofit Partnerships Director in order to amplify ámaxa’s social impact by bringing on new nonprofit partners and working closely with our current nonprofit partners to support teams working with them and to recruit teams that are a good match for them.
We are open to applicants based anywhere in the United States. The position is fully remote and currently unpaid.
This position is a leadership position within our organization. You will attend weekly meetings with our CEO and COO and you will work closely with them to amplify impact in your specified region. As such, we will prefer applicants who express a desire to stay on-board for more than 1 semester. For such applicants, we are quite willing to be flexible on weekly hourly workload in preference for long-term commitment, for example, requiring 5 hours/week for 2 semesters instead of 10 hours/week for 1 semester.
