At The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), we're passionate about our mission: to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS volunteers help carry out this mission in so many ways: supporting patients, family members, healthcare professionals, and our community, driving policy advocacy, participating in our campaigns, and helping LLS build much needed capacity.
Pennies for Patients is a science-based, service learning program. We connect schools with local blood cancer patients, provide tangible life skills to participants, and allow students to see the impact they're making in the lives of others, Elementary and Middle Schools that participate receive a comprehensive, experiential K-8 STEM curriculum to incorporate into their fundraising campaign or beyond.
Interns will work a minimum of 10 hours per week (fall and spring) and 20 hours (summer). Internships are available during the spring, summer and fall. Students must own a laptop and be able to arrange transportation to and from LLS office, events, etc. Some events may require the student to work nights or weekends when available.
Interns will work closely with the Student Series staff to develop a work plan that will benefit the campaign, and best utilize their knowledge and skills. Interns will help manage, but are not limited to the following tasks:
