EPI Global Internship Program

DESCRIPTION / PURPOSE OF INTERNSHIP 

EPI Global offers internships to engage people who are interested in the work of EPI Global and the experience of working in a start-up non-profit organization.  Interns will have the opportunity to get involved in different aspects of non-profit management and administration at the ground level.    

Interns will also be exposed to the field of emergency management specifically how it intersects with factors such as age, race, religion, ethnicity, disability, culture, and gender.   Mentoring opportunities with the EPI Advisory Team and partners will enable interns to work with leaders in this field who bring a wide range of experience and knowledge. 

The EPI Global intern program is in its infancy and very flexible to take into account the needs of those interested in participating.

Interns will work remotely, and can therefore work from anywhere as long as there is access to the internet.
