Diversity Statement

CORRAL aims to serve the highest risk girls in our community. Among those risk factors is the influence of systemic racism. As members of a marginalized population, young people of color are statistically more likely to have negative health, academic and economic outcomes. Understanding this context, CORRAL bears the same responsibility to heal the trauma our girls have experienced due to systemic racism just as much as more commonly understood forms of trauma ie. physical or emotional abuse. 

CORRAL is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Diversity is more than a commitment at CORRAL—it is the foundation of what we do. We are committed to walking with ALL stakeholders on a journey of anti-racism. We are fully focused on equity and justice. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply.

Volunteer Management Intern – Cary, NC

Learn more...

Who are we?

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 passionate, motivated university juniors or seniors enrolled in 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 intern, 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. 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! 

About the internship

At CORRAL, we don’t just give our interns leftover projects. Your time with us will be filled with opportunities to produce meaningful and impactful work. Our interns 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. Interns will also have bi-weekly performance feedback check-ins with their managers to learn and grow as leaders throughout the internship. Interns typically work 20 hours a week, with flexibility within the Monday-Friday 9 am-5 pm office schedule. Requires some evenings and Saturdays (days stated below.)  The schedule will be adjusted to accommodate.  Proficiency in Google products (i.e. sheets, slides, docs) a must.  Proficiency with Salesforce a plus, but not required.

What you’ll do

Volunteer Management

  • Work with Community Relations Manager to manage a volunteer base of just under 300 people.
  • Work with Community Relations Manager to grow our volunteer base to 350 by the end of the internship.
  • Assist with the Volunteer Orientation process preparations and event facilitation  (1st Monday evenings)
  • Assist with Farm Day preparations and event facilitation (3rd Saturdays mornings)
  • Assist with Community Engagement team meetings (1st Monday evenings)

Communications

  • Communicate with volunteer base via email using Salesforce on a regular basis to get them engaged and move them through the volunteer process.

What Our Interns Have to Say

“My time at CORRAL instilled a passion within me to help children in at risk situations. Through building relationships with the girls, I have been more confident than ever to continue pursuing my degree in psychology. CORRAL provided a safe place to learn and grow, and took me COMPLETELY outside of my comfort zone. I’m extremely thankful for the staff who poured into my life, and the girls that have forever impacted me.” -Autumn, Programming Intern

“My favorite part of CORRAL was the enthusiasm each employee had for the mission of CORRAL. It is always fun to learn from people who are genuinely excited about what they do. The great work that these individuals do is often complicated and, on occasion, quite frustrating. However, each day was a new day and they showed up to work with fresh ideas and a smile. It was really inspiring.” –Jennifer, Business Intern

“I have learned so, so much from being an intern at CORRAL. It has grown me as a person and taught me so much! I think my favorite part about working at CORRAL has been having a part in seeing the girl’s grow and succeed throughout the programming year. It has been so cool to build relationships with the girls and get to see them choose change for their lives…This program is truly changing their lives and it has been a privilege to be a small part of that change.” -Rachel, Programming Intern
