Are you passionate about children, healthy eating, and physical activity? If so, be an intern with Fit4Kids — the only organization in the Richmond region focused solely on preventing childhood obesity.
Interns have assisted Fit4Kids with Active Recess, Food Explorers, Learning Gardens, Eat Fresh RPS, Safe Routes to Schools, Health Fairs, BMI Data Collection, and many other special projects.
Intern with us!
Greater Richmond Fit4Kids is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving children’s health and wellness and reducing the prevalence of childhood obesity in the Richmond region.
Interns will have the opportunity to work directly with students at programs like Eat Fresh RPS, Learning Gardens, Safe Routes to Schools, Game On, Girl!, and Active Recess. Interns will also assist staff with administrative tasks, data collection and entry, social media, blog posts, e-newsletters, and more to achieve organizational goals.
Ideal candidates are self-motivated, enthusiastic, able to work independently and collaboratively, adaptable, patient, able to work well with children, and able to provide their own transportation to programming sites (as much of our programming is done off-site!). Prior experience with health and nutrition is not necessary; however, a passion for both is highly encouraged.
On-site training will be provided. Applicants are required to submit a background check prior to service with Fit4Kids.
The internship will be 10-20 hours a week, May-July. Candidates must be available on a M/W or T/R schedule, with availability 1-5:30 pm, to fulfill after-school programmatic needs. No stipend provided.
Public Health, Anthropology, Sociology, Social Work, and Health, Physical Education and Exercise Science (HPEX) majors are strongly encouraged to apply, as well as student-athletes, intramural athletes, and individuals with group fitness and coaching experience. Individuals with Spanish-speaking proficiencies are also encouraged to apply.
