What We’re Doing
CORRAL is a non-profit organization that acts as an intervention program for at-risk, adolescent girls in the Triangle Area. Our participants may be “at-risk” due to trauma, neglect, abuse, socioeconomic status, or, more frequently, a combination of these situations. We use a holistic approach including Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, tutoring, mentoring, and vocational training. Our goal is to teach participants how to be in healthy and whole relationships, knowing that this will lead to further transformational healing. The work we do can be hard at times, but the reward of seeing the lives of young women change for the better is what makes it all worth it.
Who are you?
We are looking for highly accountable, passionate, recently-graduated students from a B.S. or B.A. degree program related to the position. The non-profit life can get hectic at times, so we need detail-oriented self-starters that aren’t afraid to ask questions and think in innovative ways. As a CORRAL staff member, you have strong verbal and written communication skills, including public speaking and interpersonal communications. You are willing to resolve conflict and make big decisions. Although we do serious work at the farm, we don’t always take ourselves so seriously. You’ll thrive in our fun, collaborative space that’s filled with supportive people (plus their dogs). While our staff loves to work together and so do you, you also possess the ability to work independently with self-direction. Prior horse knowledge is not required to excel at this job but a willingness to learn is!
Your time with us will be filled with opportunities to produce meaningful and impactful work. Staff members are exposed to a variety of aspects of running a non-profit and are given organizational ownership over their projects. We value growth as a team and as individuals, so interns will work closely with their managers throughout their time at CORRAL. You will also have bi-weekly performance feedback check-ins with your manager to learn and grow as a leader. This position will require approximately 10–15 hours a week, with flexibility within the Monday–Saturday office schedule. You will work remotely but will also have the opportunity to visit our beautiful farms! Compensation will be $15-20 per hour, based on experience.
