Who we are: About CORRAL
CORRAL is a faith-based non-profit organization operating out of Cary, North Carolina. We are an intervention program for adolescent girls in high-risk situations in the Triangle Area. Our participants may be “high-risk” due to socioeconomic status, trauma such as neglect, abuse, or, more frequently, a combination of these situations. We pair high-risk girls between the ages of 11 and 18 with rescued horses to promote healing, transformational growth, and ultimately, lasting life change. CORRAL Riding Academy fulfills Wake County’s need for positive youth interventions by not only providing high-risk girls with positive interventions but by equipping them with the life skills and career tools they will need to succeed in their adult lives.

We’re Expanding!
CORRAL is opening up CORRAL Neuse River Campus in October 2019, a second farm in the Southeast Raleigh area. This is part of a 10 year strategy to quadruple our capacity to serve youth in Wake County by 2028! We’re growing from a small entrepreneurial non-profit to a scalable mid-level business and have a fundraising goal of $1.2 million for FY 19-20 and doubling our capacity to serve girls. CORRAL is heavily investing in growth and development over the next three years. The chosen candidate will join CORRAL’s Corporate Team which is primarily responsible for driving this growth and expansion over the next three years.

How We’re Doing It
Being part of the CORRAL team means being ready to work hard and joyfully towards this mission. We take our jobs seriously...but we try not to take ourselves too seriously. Our team is fun, collaborative, and filled with supportive people (and their dogs). You will be managed by the Director of Corporate Operations and work closely with a team of other professionals that are driving CORRAL’s expansion and growth goals.

Who you are:
We’re looking for a passionate, committed, resourceful & hard-working team player that will drive our BIG goals forward! Are you a visionary strategic thinker that is relationship focused and sales/business minded? Are you a digital guru & a brand champion that is able to see the big picture and tell the story to get us there? Are you able to work in a fast paced, collaborative space? Then we look forward to meeting with you!

Diversity Statement
CORRAL aims to serve the highest risk girls in our community. Among those risk factors is the intangible yet pervasive 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 and equitable workplace. This means we value everyone regardless of race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status. In order to create a staff that represents the youth we serve — diverse, qualified applicants are encouraged to apply.

CORRAL Internships

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 have bi-weekly performance feedback check-ins with their manager.

We are looking for passionate, motivated applicants who are at least 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 environment 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.

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
