Springtime is a busy marketing and communications time of year for Children’s Law Center as we produce our signature fundraising event Dancing with the CLC Stars and we prepare for our Annual Appeal Fundraising Campaign. Both of these events require significant electronic and paper based communications as well as significant media contact.

The intern will work with the Development Director and other members of the CLC team to plan and execute all communication and marketing efforts involved with these two major events and any other marketing and communication opportunities that arise as the result of our work representing disadvantaged children and youth.
