Event Planner Intern


This is an exciting opportunity for an inspiring event planner and social activists! Operation BBQ Relief is a non-profit disaster relief organization that provides hot BBQ meals to those affected by disasters and the first responders helping those communities. In 2017 we were recognized by CNN Heroes as one of the top 10 finalist for Hero of the Year. We are looking to grow our marketing team. College students that have a passion to serve in the non-profit world, are creative and want to use their skills in event planning to ensure successful events are perfect candidates for this position.

We are looking for an addition to our team to help plan all our events. The candidate will work with several departments to ensure that the needs for the event are met. The Event Planner must be organized and strive to ensure that every event promotes the organization in a positive light. In addition, the Event Planner will document these successes on our blogs and social media sights.

This summer internship will run (June-August), requiring approximately 10 hours per week with flexible hours. We would prefer the person be in the Kansas City metro area, but for the right candidate, we will consider virtual. For the right person, this could become a paid position.
