Internship Program

The aim of our internship program is to provide you with an opportunity to develop experience in disaster management and hurricane preparedness.

  • Gain substantive professional experience, as well as exposure to critical issues pertaining to the non-profit sector, community outreach as well as the disaster science and management field

  • Develop a comprehensive perspective on Evacuteer’s mission and the “whole community approach” to emergency preparedness

  • Advance critical projects and programs by planning, developing and coordinating with both public and private entities and organizations

As part of your internship with Evacuteer, you will work closely with the organization staff to further public awareness of emergency and disaster preparedness procedures in the City of New Orleans. This will include coordinating and developing community outreach projects, such as community canvassing days, neighborhood association meetings and various trainings.

Over the course of your internship, Evacuteer will provide you with varied experiences to further develop skills and talents that are critical when working in disaster and emergency preparedness non-profits. Former Yale University intern, Cindy Zheng, said her internship with Evacuteer taught her "valuable life skills like networking and how to handle difficult people calmly and professionally that I'll definitely have to rely on for the rest of my life."

Evacuteer gave me professional confidence in not only my public speaking skills and grant writing, but in my ability to roll with the punches and adapt to an imperfect world to get the job done
— Anna Walton, Yale University intern
