Fall Internships 2020
El Zócalo Immigrant Resource Center is looking to bring on 3 interns and volunteers onto our team for Fall 2020 who are excited to serve our immigrant neighbors!

**Atención: Si necesita esta información en español, mande un correo a team@zocalocenter.org.**

We look for
- Commitment & dedication to the organization's mission and work
- Strong work ethic & motivation
- Ability to work as a team with solid communication skills
- Deep care and concern for immigrants
- Cultural and linguistic competency

Interns will serve approximately 8-10 hours a week, starting mid-August and ending in early-December.  

Most of our work is to be done virtually for the first of the semester (at least) with every other Friday afternoon in the office.

At this time, all our internships are unpaid, but we try to give back in experience!

We seek to give our interns a unique and in-depth experience, by providing opportunities to learn about the inner-workings of our non-profit, build authentic and sincere relationships with our immigrant neighbors, and gain tangible experience for their careers and academic studies, when applicable.  

Our internships are competitive.  We seek interns who will become a true part of our team and with whom our staff will work closely to develop and hone their goals and projects.  We often cannot place every applicant with a position.  An intern's full commitment to their hours of service is very important.  

We have designed this application to get to know prospective interns more and evaluate if it's a good fit!

Please complete this application to be considered.


**If at all possible, please try to submit the application by the priority deadline or as close to it as possible.
  We will review and accept candidates after as our remaining slots and capacity allow.

Are you a student?
Clear selection
Are you eligible to receive academic credit for your internship?
Clear selection
If you ARE eligible to receive academic credit, please elaborate on the specifics.  Is it course credit for a specific department?  What are the general expectations and number of hours the school or department requires?
If you are NOT eligible for academic credit, please describe the level of commitment you can offer and why you are interested in an internship/volunteership rather than other  volunteer opportunities.  We ask that you reflect deeply on this question, as we've had a high rate of people dropping out of internships when they are not receiving credit.  We are most likely to accept applicants who demonstrate strong personal, academic and/or professional incentives and dedication to interning and serving at this time.
If you are a student, what are you studying and how does this internship fit with your academic goals?
How would an internship/volunteership help you reach your personal and/or career goals? (i.e. what would you most like to get out of this experience)
How would you describe your level of Spanish language proficiency?
Clear selection
Please describe any other languages you speak and your perceived level of proficiency.  You can also take this opportunity to provide us with more information on your Spanish or English (if a non-native speaker) language skills.
Please list 2-3 personal or professional references and their contact information (EMAIL AND PHONE Number is needed).  Teachers, employers, or colleagues, make great references.  Classmates or friends with a prior relationship to El Zócalo are also good references.
Please check the times that you would likely be available to work with us this Fall. (note: times are approximate).  Note: We will make a schedule later, but would like to know when you could be available.
Are you able to commit to the time requirements of 8-10 hours a week for the full season mid-August through early December.  If not, please describe any specific exceptions you need to request.
If the full 10-hour time commitment is difficult for you, we may consider placing one intern to serve in the Children's Program approx. 4-5 hours a week (must be available at least 2 of the following times: Tues 5:30-7:30pm, Thurs 5:30-7:30pm and/or Sun 2-6pm).  If this position interests you, please describe below.  If you are interested in the full internship experience described in this application (approx. 10 hrs/week in varied areas), please mark N/A to this question.
Please explain your schedule and availability more (include any other commitments or things that may cause your availability to vary) and overall how you plan to balance interning with the remainder of your fall activities.
Are you open to completing tasks independently and working remotely, some of the time (with training and support from our staff)?
Clear selection
Are you willing to submit to a criminal background check?
Clear selection
We will hold the majority of interviews in the first two weeks of August.  Please give us an idea of your availability during these weeks.
Anything else you'd like us to know?
