UNA-NCA Graduate Fellows Program Assistant

UNA-NCA Graduate Fellows Program Assistant
20-32 hours/week

UNA-NCA Graduate Fellows Program (GFP) Assistant:

The GFP Assistant will gain experience working in a small, non-
profit environment. To some extent the responsibilities will be
comparable to those of a teaching assistant in a graduate course at
a local university. However, the GFP assistant will also gain
exposure to a variety of communications and general
administrative tasks. The GFP assistant will work under the
supervision of the UNA-NCA Program Manager but be expected
to work independently in close cooperation with UNA-NCA office
staff and members of the GFP volunteer team – the GFP Director,
the Sr. Advisor, and the Career Strategy and Mentoring Manager.
