Explore a career in philanthropy and the non-profit sector
Creating a pipeline of leadership in the nonprofit sector means creating interest among young people in Colorado. In 1994, we created our summer Internship program in an effort to encourage interest in the philanthropy and nonprofit sector among continuing undergraduate college students. El Pomar Interns benefit from nonprofit work experience alongside professional development opportunities as they support many facets of the Foundation.
Interns work full-time for the Foundation during the summer and are assigned to a position based on the Foundation’s needs and the Intern’s interests. Typically, Interns have supported the Investment Office, the Communications Office, and a variety of the Foundation’s programs (i.e. Awards for Excellence, Regional Partnerships, Alumni Relations, and Elevating Leadership Development).
