Development Operations Intern


Team IMPACT is a national nonprofit that provides an extended support network to children living with serious and chronic illnesses by matching them up with a local college athletic team. We believe that our program can help a child increase their confidence, optimism and sense of belonging through these relationships. Children feel like they are members of the team, contributing in ways only they can, to provide insight and inspiration to the student-athletes that cannot be found on the field or in the classroom.


Intern candidates should prepare for a transformative experience at Team IMPACT – one that allows candidates to participate in real work with a fun and driven staff. Interns in our competitive program will be tasked with taking a lead on projects, working with & without supervision, and assisting existing staff on a diverse range of projects. This role will challenge participants to think creatively, work with a passion, have attention to detail and diligence, and all the while contribute to our organization’s culture and mission’s growth. Working both independently and as a group, interns will be exposed to a wide variety of projects. With so many chances to contribute to our team and mission, joining us will allow participants to make a lasting contribution across our special organization.

Team IMPACT is an equal opportunity workplace, committed to cultivating an environment where diverse perspectives and backgrounds are embraced, acknowledging that a team reflecting diversity of race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, age, gender, marital/ domestic partner status, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, and veteran status and more allows us to serve our communities better. To that end, we welcome and encourage applicants to bring their authentic selves when considering internship opportunities at Team IMPACT without fear or concern of discrimination/harassment.
