The specific objectives of our organization are to assist individuals and communities- particularly those in low-income and socially disadvantaged rural and urban areas- in the creation, expansion, and improvement of community-based enterprises with a focus on those that are cooperatively or mutually owned and governed.
Cooperative Development Intern will assist CCE program staff with specific cooperative projects. Tasks are likely to include:
- Business plan research
- Attending meetings with co-op clients
- Event planning and outreach
- Social media engagement
The Intern will have opportunities to learn business planning, financial projections, governance methods, and other enterprise development skills depending on Intern's abilities and interest. Intern will have contact with different types of co-ops, including agricultural producer, worker/industrial, grocery, and hybrid models.
