Media Outreach Internship

So, with the recent departure of our Media Outreach Coordinator, it has become necessary to look elsewhere in our constant quest for publicity and media attention. Since I obviously can't do everything that is necessary to get ample press coverage for our events, brand our many websites and publicize our big mentoring partnerships and initiatives, I'm trying to recruit someone who can. Therefore I've created a flexible internship position here at Cabrini Connections called the Media Outreach Internship that will assist me with all of the above things, plus any additional public relations that arise. I'm hoping that with the job market as bad as it is, people still reveling in Obama's victory and its concomitant spirit of community engagement, and the need for real-life P.R. experience among college students, we can attract one or more unpaid interns that will fulfill some of these roles and bring their networks into the fold here at Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection.

So, if you or someone you know is looking for an opportunity to gain real-life experience in Public Relations while at the same time helping at-risk kids succeed, please check out this internship. It's essentially an opportunity to work with us to create your own internship based on your particular strengths. Though we haven't worked out anything with particular universities to earn credit, this unpaid internship would be a great opportunity to fulfill an internship, community service or service learning requirement. So, if you or anyone you know would be interested in this internship, please have them call us at 312-492-9614 or email me at chris.warrens.mail (at)
