Summer 2023

The Community Foundation serving SW Colorado is once again offering an amazing, hands-on, paid summer internship program during the month of June with comprehensive learning opportunities for local high school students benefitting 10 Durango-area nonprofits. Organizations will receive a complete marketing/social media campaign for their SW Colorado Gives outreach, as well as a $2,500 operational grant to cover marketing expenses.

CAUSE (Community Action Utilizing Service Experience) is not your run-of-the-mill internship!

It will include local marketing professionals as mentors for the students. The students, who must be rising juniors and seniors, will be coordinated by a local teacher and paid through the Community Foundation.

Here is what the work week will look like:

  • Students will be onsite working directly with nonprofit staff, in person, on Monday mornings and all day Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
  • Students will be offsite working with local experts to create social media products for your nonprofit Monday afternoons and all day Fridays.

Video below was created by our 2nd year CAUSE intern Gabriella and is geared towards future interns.
