Volunteers Needed - Boston Ability Center

The Boston Ability Center is looking for a group of volunteers for the fall semester or ongoing, to volunteer at their Wellesley and Natick clinic locations.

The role is currently primarily cleaning as there are strict protocols in place and clinicians need help making sure toys and equipment are thoroughly sanitized between each treatment session. However, this is also a great opportunity for interested students to get in a lot of observation hours of pediatric occupational, physical, and speech-language therapy services.

Our volunteers typically follow clinicians around observing their sessions and helping them to clean as they go, and occasionally provide a second set of hands when needed. 

Any interested students can reach out to MacKenzie Rickert directly (mackenzie@bostonabilitycenter.com) and if there is any further information needed please email at any time.

INTERNSHIP - LET AMERICA VOTE


Come and intern with Let America Vote, Jason Kander’s new grassroots organization to protect voting rights! We are now accepting applications for our summer internship and fellowship programs – looking for bright, energetic individuals who want to learn the nuts and bolts of how a first-class political operation works. 

Participants will learn the basics of how to build a grassroots field program and help to elect candidates who will fight to support and protect our fundamental voting rights. They will engage in daily field activities, learn from and have access to seasoned campaign staff, and hear from a variety of political guest speakers. By learning the basics of campaign and political organizing, we will not only put together a strong ground-game program to elect candidates that share our mission in 2017, but teach everyone involved the skills necessary to run their own campaigns in 2018 and beyond.

Hours are very flexible, and the team here at Let America Vote is a lot of fun! No experience necessary. You will walk out the door at the end of the internship knowing how to run a local field program, as well as having met some great friends.

In addition, the organization is also offering a fellowship program for participants who are looking to be even more involved. With a greater time commitment, fellows will also benefit from our Field Organizer Training Program, where they’ll learn about grassroots organizing from a team of experts, preparing them to be even more effective in their roles within the organization, and also preparing them to work effectively on future advocacy, political campaigns, and other modes of valuable civic engagement. 

To apply, please visit letamericavote.org/intern, call us at 603.493.0089 or email us at intern.newhampshire@letamericavote.org
