Darim Online is currently accepting applications for a graduate student intern (FT summer '09, and 10 hrs/week during the '09-'10 academic year) to help us work on innovations in Jewish education! The project, funded by the Covenant Foundation, is specifically focused on helping Jewish educators learn how to use social media in their work. Internship projects will be fine tuned based on the interests and skills of the intern and can be specific to Jewish education, or more based on org development/business or marketing/communications. This is a PAID internship, and a self-motivated intern can work from home where ever they live, or from our offices. More info here: Spread the word!
