Is your cooperative looking to hire an intern this summer? The North American Students of Cooperation (NASCO) is accepting host applications for its summer Cooperative Internship Network. Whatever the size or type of your organization, we encourage you to take part in this opportunity to expand your support team.
Since the 1980s, the NASCO Cooperative Internship Network has allowed cooperatives and other organizations to directly market paid internships to thousands of cooperative youth through NASCO’s membership and networks without the hassle of a traditional intern hiring process. Through this service, NASCO will advertise the internships, process host/intern applications and identify potential matches. Hosts simply design their internship, conduct interviews and make a hiring decision.
NASCO’s 45-member organizations represent nearly 4,000 individuals, the majority of whom are youth living in housing cooperatives. Unlike typical internship applicant pools, NASCO’s members are entering the workforce with a wealth of cooperative experience, advanced democratic competencies, relevant job skills and a deep appreciation for the cooperative business model. These are not your typical interns.
Applications from host organizations are due by Sunday, February 28, 2016. For more information, visit NASCO’s website or join one of our information sessions on February 3 or 12. Questions may be directed to Morgan Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
