You do not need to be a hardcore bicyclist to intern with us — you just need to believe in the power of the bicycle as a transportation tool and a vehicle for positive community change. You must also believe that bicycles are for everyone, of all abilities, backgrounds, and needs.
If that sounds like you, send us your resume along with a cover note that tells us about yourself & describes the timeframe you would be available: firstname.lastname@example.org
We work to provide our interns with a multi-faceted learning experience. Our organization is dynamic, as is the community we serve. In addition to the tasks assigned to them, an ideal intern would step-up and ask to be included in other projects & activities that they find interesting.
Intern tasks typically include:
Policy: Working alongside our staff as we advocate for transportation & infrastructure improvements across this region – these efforts include our Vision Zero initiatives, our ongoing work to expand the Circuit Trails network, managing our annual Bike Counts (coordinating volunteers as well as collecting data), and also assisting at the various classes & lectures we offer throughout the community.
Operations: Assisting our staff with the daily duties of running a bustling non-profit organization.
Communications: Assisting the Communications Manager – collecting and reporting on media / drafting interesting and unique blog posts / writing and editing multiple platforms to tell a story, including WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, video and audio.
Events: Engaging our current & future members by working on event logistics and volunteer management.
Development: Assisting our Development group as they research and cultivate donor prospects.
Women Bike PHL: Coordinating Women Bike PHL programs – Coffee Club / Urban Riding Basics classes / Cycle Rides / Happy Hours. Help maintain the Women Bike PHL calendar, publicize events on the Facebook group, and populate a monthly newsletter. (This particular role is best suited to folks who identify as women, trans, gender-non-conforming, etc.).
In addition to interns, we are always looking for talented, passionate people with skills in urban planning, community organizing, research and development, graphic design, filming and video editing, and political advocacy. We regularly have need of these skills in a volunteer capacity, if that interests you.
