ICHV Internships

The Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence (ICHV) is offering internships for anyone interested in getting hands-on non-profit management experience.  ICHV is the nation’s oldest, largest and most active statewide organization dedicated to reducing the incidence of death and injury caused by handgun violence. Our work includes reaching out to communities to educate them about the risks associated with handgun violence, serving as a clearinghouse for information on the issue of violence and helping turn public opinion in to public policy through advocacy for common sense gun legislation.  Open positions entail 10-15 hours a week and require a 6-8 week commitment.

Interns will work under the direct supervision of the Executive Director.  They will gain valuable experience in many different aspects of non-profit management such as development, community relations, organization and outreach. Interns will be specifically in charge of updating and maintaining the media archive, managing the database, corresponding with volunteers and ICHV members, general office assistance and will help organize an up-coming special event.

Positions require a high school diploma or equivalent, college degree, or degree-seeking student, preferred. Current full and part time students are encouraged to apply.  ICHV will work with your institution to secure course credit for your work if applicable. Positions require independence, motivation, organization and most importantly commitment to the cause.
