Another Potential Spring 2021 Internship at 100 for All, a non-profit

Dear students, I reached out to a past employer for a City Tech Intern, 100forall.

About the company:

“100 For All is a 501(3)c nonprofit committed to addressing the global water crisis. Through collaboration with mission-aligned organizations, sponsors, and donations, we help raise social-consciousness about the water crisis, create new strategies to promote water sustainability and preservation, and install cutting-edge, cost-efficient water treatment solutions to affected regions.”

We had a City Tech student work on  web development for this non-profit. You can read about Mr. Martinez’s internship experience at this internship on his blog at:

https://openlab.citytech.cuny.edu/amartinez1-eportfolio/

If you are interested in interning at this company, you can email your resume and portfolio to 100@100forall.org. For this spot, I believe they are interested in having someone work on promoting the company’s events and social media presence and updating the website as well.

Before you apply, do read the internship blog of Mr. Martinez, the student who interned there in Spring of 2020 and do go to the company’s website and do some research on the company. In your email, you should highlight why you would want to work for them and any ideas you have based on what you’ve learned.
