Niagara Hospice is offering two paid summer internship opportunities for college students living in eastern Niagara County, or any student attending Niagara University or NCCC. Students are encouraged to apply for the Marketing & Public Relations Internship or the Special Events Internship, both made possible through the Grigg Lewis Foundation's Workership Program. The primary focus of the Workerships is to provide financial assistance to area college students; allow local institutions to expand their summer programming and to benefit the entire community by the expanded and improved programs of the agencies.            

The Marketing & Public Relations Intern will play an integral part in the marketing and public relations of Niagara Hospice throughout the course of the summer. The intern will help develop promotional and educational materials, participate in marketing & PR activities for Niagara Hospice that will include research and data compilation, and assist with community outreach initiatives and special events to help increase awareness and funding for Niagara Hospice. Necessary skills include graphic design, Photoshop and Adobe Creative Suite preferred, MS Office, writing, multitasking, as well as general office, organization and social media skills.

A student with career goals in the fundraising, event planning, marketing and public relations fields will benefit from the Special Events Internship. The student will be involved in the planning and execution of fundraisers during the summer. Necessary skills include desktop publishing, MS Office, writing, general office skills, multitasking, organization and superior telephone etiquette.

Anyone interested in applying for the workership positions must be a college student who will be returning to his or her studies in the fall of 2018, or a high school graduate who has been accepted at an accredited college for fall 2018. To apply, applicants may visit the Careers page at www.NiagaraHospice.org for more information and application instructions. Interviews will be held during spring break; potential applicants are urged to apply as soon as possible.
