Philly Parks Alliance 2016-7 Internships

The Philadelphia Parks Alliance is looking for energetic and passionate interns for the 2016-2017 school year. Founded in 1984, the Parks Alliance is the voice of Philadelphia’s parks and recreation users—advocating for and supporting one of the largest urban recreation systems in the country. We want to make Philadelphia a healthy, vibrant, and sustainable city for all.

The Parks Alliance is a fast-paced and lively 501(c)(3) non-profit that welcomes big ideas and big personalities at our West Philadelphia office. Our work is collaborative by nature and empowering by design. The Parks Alliance is a place for people looking for real responsibility and impact-- not grabbing coffee or making copies.

Internships with the Parks Alliance are unpaid, but we can promise a rewarding experience doing work that matters. During their tenure with our organization, interns will divide their time between one or more long-term projects in addition to day-to-day work.

Our work is varied, and we currently have projects in advocacy, journalism, fundraising, photojournalism, marketing, communications, program management, sustainability, law, research, public policy, graphic design, urban design, GIS analysis, and community outreach.

If you are interested in working with us, please send a cover letter and resume to Olivia Ortiz at For questions or inquiries, call 215-879-8159. We accept applications on a rolling basis.
