TrackTown Youth League Internship- Now Accepting Applications
We are seeking enthusiastic team players passionate about serving youth in their communities to help us operate the 2019 TTYL Season from April-July. TTYL interns have an opportunity to gain exposure to all levels of non-profit program management- from marketing and community outreach to event operations and to program data analysis- while working in a dynamic environment that includes time both in the office and out in the field. Are you a passionate advocate for youth in your community eager to connect families to a new activity? Are you a star at event organization looking for on-the-ground experience managing a state-wide sports event series? Are you a media whiz ready to unleash your creativity? Have you ever been called a “track nerd”?! If you can answer yes to any of these questions, keep reading!
Interns will specialize in one of three roles- marketing assistant, program administration and community relations specialist, or meet operations leader. All positions will be asked to travel to a portion of the TTYL meets to support meet set-up, athlete registration, meet operations, results and awards, and meet clean-up, requiring weekday evening and weekend work hours. Please note that candidates should be comfortable walking and standing for long periods of time, and lifting equipment. In addition to attending track meets, a schedule for weekly in-office hours at our Portland office during regular business hours will be determined with each candidate based on their weekly availability. Total time commitment will begin at 5-10 hours per week in March and increase to 30 hours per week in May and June, depending on meet schedule. A vehicle will be provided for the TTYL team to travel to meets, but all candidates should have reliable transportation to get to and from the OSA office. All roles will be compensated at $11-15 per hour, depending on experience. Please read the full role descriptions here.
