Access Program Intern (downtown / civic / van ness)

Our Family Coalition promotes the equality and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer families with children. We foster community leadership in advocacy efforts that promote social justice.

Our Family Coalition's Access Program, a cultural competency program, offers training and technical assistance for health, mental health and social service providers so they are better able to serve LGBTQ headed families with children. Our program also includes our School Advocacy work which works with parents, teachers, administrators and others to create more welcoming schools for the children of LGBTQ headed households, address gender stereotypes, and break down anti-gay bias at an early age. In doing so we hope to help build agencies' and schools' skills in recognizing and confronting any biases or stereotypes agencies might have while providing some basic information about LGBTQ people, our families, and how to help ensure that our children grow up healthy and secure.

The Access Program intern will work closely with the Access Program Training Coordinator. Number of hours and start/end date flexible. Our office is located by Civic Center in San Francisco, easily accessible by public transportation.

Responsibilities:
• Assist with outreach efforts through media, events, organizations, and coalitions;
• Help design, coordinate, and reproduce outreach and educational materials;
• Provide general administrative support including data entry and research; and
• Assist and support organizational ongoing projects as needed.

Qualifications:
• Excellent written and oral communication skills
• Comfortable and excited about working with diverse community groups
• Good organization and time-management
• Written and spoken fluency in Spanish a plus
• Embrace OFC's mission and vision
• Be able to work in a small, close-knit team environment.

Interns are accepted on an on-going, as needed basis. Our Family Coalition asks that interns make a commitment of at least 2 month. Please email cover letter explaining why you are interested in working for Our Family Coalition, with resume to internship@ourfamily.org or fax to 415-981-1962.
