(Nor women?s, we hasten to add). Little plans also do not have the power to provide a better education to 56 million kids who deserve more than they are getting today. We face a crushing need in schools, have a solid plan to address it, and with your help, we intend to grow this very large and very fast.Where are you located?We are in Manhattan, conveniently located right across from Madison Square Garden. There are four express subway stops within one block. We will also hire interns to work remotely from other cities.I looked at your site and have some suggestions.Great! This is a collaborative project, and we want to hear from you. Is this a paid internship?We can offer a great experience, a great addition to your portfolio, academic credit (if your school allows), stunning recommendations, and a chance to make a difference, but we are a start-up nonprofit, so can only offer unpaid internship and volunteer positions. When will you select the interns?We?re agile. When we see a great candidate, we extend an invitation immediately. We won?t keep you waiting for a decision.What dates will the internship run?We are hiring for the spring semester, for the summer, and beyond. Tell us what you are looking for.What are the hours? We welcome full-time and part-time interns. Let us know what works for you.What will I need to bring?Brains, heart, passion, energy, a notebook computer, and a passion to make an immediate improvement to the education of tens of millions of children.Sounds exciting! How can I apply?Please send an impressive cover letter and a resume to interns@ClassWish.org.Requirements:
