Summer Outreach Interns — Two positions in Amherst, NY

Every year, CFI provides opportunities for students to get more involved with the secular movement by offering student internships and volunteer positions at CFI branches across North America.  Last summer, Tony Lakey from the University of Missouri Skeptics, Atheists, Secular Humanists, & Agnostics (MU SASHA) and Stef McGraw from the University of Northern Iowa Freethinkers & Inquirers (UNIFI) joined the Outreach Department at CFI–Transnational, gaining valuable experience and contributing to the success of the summer CFI Leadership Conference.

We’re looking for two students to intern at CFI–Transnational in Amherst, NY this summer.

  • Stipend: $165/week
  • Dates: May 13 – August 2 (flexible)
  • Housing is provided
  • Must be a U.S. citizen or legally authorized to work in the United States

The interns will be trained in campus outreach, grassroots organizing, event planning and management, and other skills useful in nonprofit advocacy.  Specific projects depend on the interns’ interests and experience but may include: developing new online campus organizing resources, producing audio and video materials, and designing new CFI On Campus promotional materials.

To apply for an internship, please send a resume to and provide the following additional information: 

  • Statement of your academic and other interests.
