ALUMNI REUNION: Join us on January 3, 2013 for our third annual Alumni Reunion! We’ll be at The Denver Foundation, 55 Madison Street, 8th Floor, Denver, CO 80206 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Come stop by, have some food, and say hello! Click here to RSVP.
There are lots of ways for alumni to get involved with the Nonprofit Internship Program, particularly helping with outreach to prospective students. See below for some easy ways that we have developed to engage with prospective student applicants for the program.
Much of our applicant pool comes from our collaboration with various campuses. As students and alumni, you have the option of re-visiting your class to speak about the Nonprofit Internship Program and your experience.
Speaking With Student Groups
Many outstanding applicants are also involved community members. Whether you are involved in a student organization on campus or within your own neighborhood, speaking about your experience with the Nonprofit Internship Program could serve as a valuable opportunity for your fellow peers and team members.
Connecting with Organizations/Faculty
It is our goal to reach as many audiences as possible. We would love it if you could connect us to the organizations and people you are involved with, whether that is departments on your campus (Career Services, Multicultural Centers, etc.), Greek Life, or your advisor.
Spreading the Message
While it is great to be heavily involved, we also want to be conscious of your time. Whether it is passing out brochures about the program or forwarding our outreach e-mails to prospective applicants, we appreciate all of your work! If you’d like some brochures mailed to you, please email Holly.
Many of our interns hear about the NPIP through their campus connections. As an alumnus, you have valuable insight into the program and could help to encourage students on your campus to apply. You would be our primary student contact on your campus for students from your campus who would like to apply for the program. If you’re willing to be a campus representative, we’ll post your name and campus on our website, and ask prospective students to contact Holly to get in touch with you. If you agree, Holly will share your email address with those students (or whatever is the best way of contacting you on campus).
We have created a Google Form, where you can nominate anyone you'd think would be a great applicant! Once we receive the nomination, we'll send out a personal e-mail to the nominee about their nomination and how they can apply. You can nominate a prospective intern here: http://tinyurl.com/NPIPnomination. Please note that unfortunately, a nomination does not guarantee that someone will have an interview or be selected as an intern.
This is by no means a finalized list. If you have an idea that is not listed, please let us know! We are very open to implementing new ways to get you involved.
