General Internship Posting - Unpaid

United Way of the Greater LV Allentown, PENNSYLVANIA

Interested in a non-employee internship at UWGLV but don't see a specific internship role available that meets your interest area?  Use this job posting to complete a general application for any Stipend Internships.  

Stipend Internships at UWGLV are available in most of our business areas year round.

·         Open to individuals of any age over 14, in a formal educational program or not, who demonstrate they are developing new professional skills and would benefit from the opportunity to work and learn in our organization.

·         Will work on projects that go beyond that which the organization expected to accomplish with regular employees and which are not core to the achievement of the organization’s mission.  A stipend intern’s work accountabilities are “nice to have” rather than “must have” contributions to the organizational priorities for the year.

·         A stipend intern is expected to get as much from the work experience at UWGLV as UWGLV gets from the intern.  The supervisor of a stipend intern should anticipate a “break-even” exchange of time invested in mentoring the intern versus work product contributed to the organization.

·         It is not the purpose or intention of this program to allow prospective employees to “work for free” to demonstrate their skill set or prove their suitability for employment. Candidates applying for stipend internships for this purpose will not be accepted.

·         Not compensated for their time or work.

·         May serve as a stipend intern for no more than 1 year or no more than 950 hours.

·         Stipend Interns will receive a stipend intended to offset the costs they have associated with serving in the office (meals and transportation).  The stipend will be $25 per week of the internship period, payable in equal installments to start with 1 on their first day, 1 every 3 weeks during the internship and 1 on their last day. 

·         A stipend intern may decline the stipend for any reason, including if their school does not allow it as part of their internship program.
