Internship and Leadership Opportunities

Internships

Interns help keep TABLE running smoothly. By interning at TABLE, you can gain excellent experience for a future in the non-profit sector or for other jobs that may require the skills you can learn at TABLE.

Many of our interns come through UNC’s Bonner Leaders Program, however, we do periodically need more. Internships are unpaid, 10-15 hours per week, and require a one-semester commitment. We have a variety of internship opportunities including:

  • Administrative & Special Projects
  • Nutrition Education
  • PR and Marketing
  • Wildflower Lane Farm

Most interns assist in providing administrative support and leading volunteer shifts. Interns should be strong communicators, independent, organized and able to take initiative. Experience with donor and/or customer relations are also beneficial. PR/Marketing interns should also have some sort of graphic design or photography skill and/or be in a related major.

How to Apply:

Send your resume, cover letter, and the internship you are interested in to volunteers@tablenc.org at the following times:

  • March for summer leadership opportunities
  • July for fall leadership opportunities
  • November for spring leadership opportunities

Leadership Positions

TABLE has multiple volunteer shifts every week through both our SnackChef and Weekend Meal Backpack Programs which are led by volunteer Team Leaders. We greatly depend on them! Leaders are responsible for arriving early for the shift to set up and to greet incoming volunteers, sharing with volunteers about what we do at TABLE and training them on the day’s tasks, directing the shift, ensuring all tasks are completed, cleaning up at the end, and staying until the last volunteer is gone. SnackChef leaders also are responsible for leading a lesson and an activity with kids at afterschool centers.

Many Team Leaders are UNC students (sophomores and older) with prior volunteer experience at TABLE. This is a semester-long weekly commitment. Having a car is beneficial to a SnackChef leadership position, but not required. Leaders should be highly responsible, punctual, and comfortable speaking in front of a group. We provide training and background checks for all new leaders.

How to Apply:

Provide your name, year in school (if applicable), volunteer experience at TABLE, availability for volunteering to volunteers@tablenc.org at the following times:

  • March for summer leadership opportunities
  • July for fall leadership opportunities
  • November for spring leadership opportunities
