Financial Support Intern
Financial Support Team
The Financial Support Intern will be focused on improving our Financial Support Programs and expanding their reach. They will work closely with the Director of Financial Support. Pawsible’s Financial Support Team aims to increase equity in the puppy raising community by decreasing the financial burden raisers face. The Financial Support Intern will also have the opportunity to work with other teams and interns throughout their internship.
This is a remote, part-time, and unpaid position within a growing organization. We are currently unable to pay any team member within Pawsible. The remote aspect of this position will be conducted largely on your own time and will require fluency in Google Suite products. Video conferencing will be used for meetings that will occur on a regular basis as they fit in your schedule.
In addition to assisting the Pawsible Team in your department, interns will receive professional development, networking, and other insights into the workings of a small nonprofit. We are looking for individuals that are able to commit at least 5-10 hours a week, but can be flexible to your availability. If you are doing this for course credit, we will do our best to accomodate the needs of your academic program.
The Summer 2021 Internship Program will begin June 1, 2021 and end August 13, 2021. These dates can be adjusted to fit the needs of your academic program on an as needed basis.
You do not need to be a student or involved in volunteer puppy raising to be an intern.

Working at Pawsible may be a bit of an adjustment for some, but we know you can flourish here. Maintaining personal accountability, around your projects, time management, and all the work you do here, will help you get the most out of your experience with Pawsible.
Initiative - Becoming a Financial Support Intern requires taking initiative beyond the tasks given to you by the Director of Financial Support. Our startup environment is well-suited to self-starters that take initiative with their projects and related work. In this position you are encouraged to grow and work beyond the basic outline of this position description.
Empathy - Practicing empathy is essential to all of our work here at Pawsible. This applies to working with team members, program applicants and recipients, and our external community. You can embody empathy by practicing growth mindset, giving and receiving feedback constructively, communicating with an open-mind, and assuming positive intent even in tough situations. We do not have a tolerance for discriminatory or judgmental behavior. We hope that as a Financial Support Intern you will use your position and resources to support volunteers and make the raising of future assistance dogs a better experience for all.
