Housing Resource Center Summer Intern
THE ACTORS FUND
The Actors Fund, a national nonprofit organization serving professionals in need in the entertainment community, seeks a summer intern to staff its Housing Resource Center. This is an ideal opportunity for a current undergraduate or graduate student (or recent graduate) with a demonstrated interest in the field of housing policy, community development, public affairs, or social services. The intern will have the opportunity to gain research, project management, and content development skills. Background in the performing arts and entertainment a plus.
The Housing Resource Center provides seminars, workshops, informational and educational materials, and one-on-one counseling to performing arts and entertainment professionals who need assistance with housing.
This is an intern position based in The Actors Fund's National Headquarters Office in Times Square, New York City. The program duration is approximately May-August with an expected time commitment of 25-35 hours per week. (Not to exceed 35 hours per week.) A modest stipend is provided.
The intern will gain skills in online media and project management by updating and expanding the Housing Resource Center web page. Web content will address rentals and homeownership, subsidized housing, tenants’ rights, and credit and personal finance (as they relate to eligibility and readiness to apply for housing). The intern will have the opportunity to work independently, owning this project from the research phase to completion, while receiving regular supervision and collaborating with Housing Resource Center and Communications staff. Through extensive research, the intern will develop an expertise in the breadth of housing policies, programs, and opportunities in three major metropolitan areas: New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The intern will also strengthen his/her ability to collect and analyze best practices by researching successful habits and strategies to help stabilize household finances and housing status. Finally, the intern will hone content development skills by curating links, creating fact sheets, glossaries, directories, and interactive online tutorials. The intern may also gain exposure to general office tasks by assisting with preparation for seminars and workshops.
