Good Old Lower East Side Internship Application
Good Old Lower East Side (GOLES) is a neighborhood housing and preservation organization that has served the Lower East Side of Manhattan since 1977. We are dedicated to building the power of our residents with supportive direct services and community organizing. We serve over 10,000 families each year through our multi-pronged approach to fighting poverty and protecting the rights of Lower East Side tenants, including workshops, trainings, organizing in rent regulated and public housing, community-based research and direct assistance around housing, employment, healthy aging, and long-term disaster recovery. We work locally, city-wide, and nationally with our allies to build solidarity and collective power to fight against the issues that oppress us and to create the world we want to see.

In being a small community based organization, GOLES recognizes and values the active role interns can play in supporting our endeavors in the Lower East Side. At GOLES, we are committed to social justice and recognize that our interns are also students, parents and workers, which is why we believe in being flexible and open to working with folks with varying levels of commitment and capacity.

If you are interested in interning at GOLES, please fill out the Internship Application below. If there's a project that matches your interests and availability, interns will be required to attend an orientation, sign a intern agreement, and establish an agreed upon schedule with the GOLES staff. In order to maintain a sustainable, positive and efficient relationship it is necessary that interns honor and follow through with whatever level of commitment they make. We welcome you to get involved in our upcoming projects but also expect that interns be honest about their capacity and consistent in their participation.

We look forward to having you join the team!

Damaris Reyes
Executive Director
