The Illinois Prison Project (IPP) is a nonprofit organization in Chicago that seeks to reduce mass incarceration by providing legal services to individuals incarcerated in the Illinois Department of Corrections. We focus on novel and creative approaches to prison reduction including mass commutation campaigns, sentence restructuring, public education and advocacy.
The Illinois Prison Project seeks a dynamic, detail-oriented, organized and energetic Office Support Intern to join us. The Office Support Intern will provide administrative support to the IPP team in an effort to reduce mass incarceration. This will be a part-time summer internship from June 2023 - August 2023.
Although the team has a hybrid in person/remote work environment, IPP requires this position to visit the office three days each week during their internship to help with in-office tasks. Successful applicants will be asked to pursue school funding if available. IPP commits to funding all intern positions at a rate comparable to $14.50 per hour and with the expectation of working 20 hours per week for 10 weeks during the summer months. The start date for the internship is June 5, 2023 and the end date is August 14, 2023. IPP requires all team members to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Proof of vaccination will be required.
Illinois Prison Project is committed to providing an environment of mutual respect where equal employment opportunities are available to all applicants and teammates without regard to race, color, religion or belief, sex, pregnancy, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, military and veteran status, and any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
