Library, Office and Event Planing

Our interns will have the opportunities to assist us in the process and gain first-hand knowledge of how a non-profit is set up and maintained.

We are currently seeking an intern who would help us with:

– Office tasks;

– Research tasks (research artists, exhibitions, ongoing and upcoming events, grant openings, etc.);

– Social media and Community outreach;

– Library maintenance (including doing data-entry for our catalog, physically   arranging books);

– Event planning and execution (we have monthly readings, movie showings, art exhibitions and our interns help directly with the execution of each event).


The ideal candidate should:

– Have a strong sense of commitment,  and be capable of taking up a task and seeing it through (we do provide supervision and we are pleased to teach);

– Be a tech and media savvy, who can help us keep track and update our social media channels, do blog postings, edit images, convert files, etc.;

– Be very interested in Brazil and Brazilian culture; Portuguese speaking is a plus, but it's not a requirement;

– Be able to committing at least 12 hours/week to our organization, preferably coming at least two or three days a week;

– Grant writing experience is a huge plus and we are able to accommodate different arrangements for professionals who could help us with that.


We will be hiring more than one candidate and we need people within a multiple range of skills.

This is an internship job.  Although there is not payment involved, BEA does offer a small stipend to cover travel expenses.
