Looking for Internships - Boise Area
Venture College is under the College of Innovation and Design at Boise State University, and while they primarily focus on entrepreneurship and student-led businesses. They have recently started a new internship program for Boise State students, and are looking for nonprofits to partner with!
The internship program is unique in that it is project-based. Students are assigned projects from different nonprofits/businesses and work on them either solo or on teams at the Venture College offices in downtown Boise. All communication is done through the program and will also act as quality control on the projects the interns are assigned. This alleviates a lot of the pressure organizations feel to always have work for interns/finding space for interns/managing interns. As nonprofits have projects in need of extra hands, the Venture College finds interns with the applicable skill set, and everything is done through the Venture College.
If you know of any nonprofits that may have projects or may need assistance from interns, please let them know.
Contact Sarah Ober if Interested:
Interested workshop and/or keynote presenters should submit proposal(s) no later than midnight Eastern Time on Monday, December 10.
Please review the Call for Proposals Guidelines prior to submission for complete details.
For proposal-related questions, please contact Pam Zeutenhorst at firstname.lastname@example.org or (207) 370-9481.

Volunteers Needed in Boise Area?
BB Involved stems from Boise Brewing’s original idea of “Community Supported Beer” or CSB. There will be a handle in the taproom designated for CSB batches where $1 of every pint sold will be donated to charity.
Volunteer Coordinators will work with one selected charitable organization per month to plan a volunteer event. The purpose of BB Involved is to support a nonprofit organization and give back to the community. BB Involved is a way to connect and give back without stressing brewery operations. It provides an opportunity for nonprofits to showcase their organization and receive extra help from volunteers.
