Dallas Voice (02.26.13) Aids Weekly Plus

ExxonMobil is funding summer internships for college students at 30 nonprofit organizations, including AIDS Service Dallas (ASD) and Legacy Counseling Center. The Legacy intern will assist the program director of Legacy Founders Cottage. Melissa Grove, Legacy’s executive director, describes the program director’s job as coordinating care of persons at the house, ensuring that the house is moving smoothly, getting individuals to appointments, and picking up medication and groceries. ASD’s Chief Executive Officer Don Maison describes their intern’s position as working with the children living at the facility to keep them off the street. In addition to Legacy and ASD, other agencies available for interns are the Center for Nonprofit Management, which has been a resource for a number of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) and AIDS organizations; and Promise House, which partners with Youth First Texas for emergency youth shelter and transitional living. Additionally, arts organizations such as Dallas Black Dance Theater and Undermain Theater have open ExxonMobil intern positions. Interested college students should contact the agencies.
