Travel & Outreach Internship

The Soles4Souls Internship Program is an unpaid, semester-long internship that offers university students the opportunity to explore the world of nonprofit work. The goal of the S4S Internship Program is to link college coursework and theory with career responsibilities and expectations to help students visualize their future.

 

Overview of duties:

 

Did you know that Soles4Souls Travel Department provides shoes, to help disrupt the cycle of poverty, in 12 different countries around the world? Our Travel Department provides a unique way for volunteers to experience our mission first-hand. Whether it’s an individual’s first time volunteering with our organization or they’ve collected shoes for us before, our travel trips truly showcase what it means to ‘give shoes, give love.’ Our small, but fierce, team organizes & leads these distribution trips year-round. We plan individual, public and personalized private group trips. From start to finish, our team is there to provide individuals with the necessary support, preparation & guidance both at home & abroad.

 

Soles4Souls’ Outreach Department works with global non-profits who partner with us to distribute shoes domestically and internationally. We plan corporate distribution events for the organization throughout the year and ensure that free distribution of footwear and clothing is being executed successfully through direct and indirect distribution efforts.
