Since its founding, volunteerism has been an integral part of Kiva’s foundation and success. Kiva Interns contribute their passion, drive, ideas and expertise to expanding our reach and impact while taking on immediate and significant responsibilities within their teams. In addition to learning on the job, you’ll partake in a variety of educational, social, and professional development workshops and events that will accelerate your professional growth while learning about Kiva and the non-profit, technology, and microfinance sectors.
Kiva Internships are part-time, unpaid positions that take place in our headquarters in San Francisco, CA.
Kiva is currently hiring for our July 6, 2017 – January 19, 2018 Internship Class
With two classes each year, Kiva hires over thirty part-time interns to be placed within most departments of the organization. While hiring for internship roles, we evaluate your application and interests to match you to a position that will leverage your talents while providing you with an opportunity to develop and grow.
Although Kiva Interns range in age and experience, a common theme among our participants is a “can do” attitude as well as a desire and willingness to dive in and get their hands dirty.
All Kiva Interns take on substantial responsibility within their departments while contributing to their teams. Interns work directly with varying levels of Kiva\’s management, providing exposure and chances to contribute to projects that help determine Kiva’s future.
Candidates will apply to one of the following categories, and we will match your skills, and desires with Kiva needs. Please read through the below job descriptions for a better understanding of what interns are responsible for.
