Part-time internship opportunity at Housing Works, a non-profit in NYC. Due to the part-time status, you'd need to get creative about how to get to NYC for the summer. Perhaps another part-time internship at another firm? Sharing an apartment with other KCAI students for the summer?
About Housing Works:
Housing Works is a healing community of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Our mission is to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services, and self-sustaining entrepreneurial ventures.
Through advocacy Housing Works fights to ensure that all people living with HIV/AIDS have access to quality housing, healthcare, and HIV prevention. We have provided an array of services to more than 20,000 homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS since 1990. Those services include: housing, healthcare, meals and nutritional counseling, mental health and substance use treatment, job training, and legal assistance. Housing Works pioneered the concept of social enterprise–self-sustaining business ventures whose profits fund the mission of a parent not-for-profit organization. Our acclaimed Housing Works Thrift Shops, Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, and The Works Catering account for approximately 25% of our $43 million annual operating budget.
