We have a unique and interesting internship opportunity that has been posted and in conjunction with the posting, we will be hosting a Skype information session with the organization so interested students can learn more about Adelante and the internship. The information session will be held at the Career Development Center on March 28 at 5:30pm. Students can RSVP through their myIUcareers account. Here is some information about the position and organization. Adelante Foundation is currently seeking a Development Intern to assist the International Development Coordinator with fundraising responsibilities including grant writing and campaign development for our microfinance and education programs. The job will require time to be split between field visits with borrowers throughout Honduras to become familiar with the operations and work from the main office in La Ceiba, Honduras to develop grant proposals and carry out other related fundraising duties. Only candidates with previous grant writing experience will be considered. Adelante is seeking a candidate willing to commit approximately three months with flexible start and end date. A monthly stipend of $500 will be provided and all in-country work expenses will be covered. The candidate will be expected to work a full time schedule with flexible hours.
The mission of the Adelante Foundation is to help the poorest of the poor women in rural Honduras improve their standard of living. We do this by loaning money to women for them to start and grow small businesses.
