Schools Coordinator Intern

Part-time, unpaid, Wellington-based. 23223118_10213116145990695_363043491_o

InsideOUT is a national youth charity seeking a Schools Coordinator Intern for ten hours a week to support our growing organisation. This position is unpaid and working hours are flexible.

You will be responsible for managing and developing InsideOUT’s relationships with schools and school groups around the country. You will be responsible for overseeing and supporting our national network for schools with rainbow diversity groups/queer-straight alliances.

This will include keeping our schools database up to date, and providing support to schools, students and school groups through distributing resources, and offering advisement over phone, e-mail, and in-person as required. You will also produce a monthly informative and advisory newsletter to these groups and support InsideOUT to engage schools with national campaigns such as the Day of Silence and develop new resources. There will be flexibility to support other parts of InsideOUT’s work based on your skills and interest.

InsideOUT is a growing organisation that works to support youth, whānau, schools, community groups, youth services, government agencies and other relevant organisations to provide safer schools and communities for young people of minority sexualities, genders and sex characteristics.

We are looking for someone with superb networking and communication skills and outstanding knowledge of the challenges faced by sexual, sex, and gender minorities. Experience in the following areas would be an advantage: design, communications, project management, working with schools.
You are self-motivated with strong time management skills, and will work to uphold the vision and mission of InsideOUT. More information about the organisation is available on our website: http://www.insideout.org.nz/

Due to funding restraints this is initially an unpaid intern position for ten hours a week, with the possibility of this turning into a paid position at a later point for the right applicant. The successful applicant will receive reimbursement for any reasonable expenses eg. transport and will have access to free professional development opportunities, mentoring from our National Coordinator, and the opportunity to gain work experience in one of New Zealand’s leading youth charities. You will be eligible for written or phone references from InsideOUT and we are happy to support you to count your hours to volunteering programmes such as VicPlus, or a relevant qualification if appropriate.
