Link to the Mission:
Target Hunger is one of our annual fundraisers, which enables all community members to easily make a donation to Lethbridge Food Bank and Interfaith Food Bank, the two Lethbridge food banks. The basic premise of the event is that volunteers deliver yellow bags to each residence in Lethbridge (during the week prior to the event), then on the second Saturday in June, the bags are collected and delivered to the food banks for sorting and eventual distribution. Information Technology Intern would be responsible in creating an online sign-up tool for volunteers to choose their desired routes and gather information for delivery of the yellow bags.
The successful applicant will complete the internship by the middle of June 2017.
Develop/upgrade an online sign-up tool (website) that is user friendly
Create a user guide for how to operate and make changes to the website
Update all social media outlets related to the Target Hunger Event
Work together with the two foodbanks to ensure the website is functional and provides reports as needed
Communicate regularly with the Target Hunger Coordinators to ensure functionality of the sign-up tool
The successful applicant will be responsible to both Lethbridge Food Bank and Interfaith Food Bank Executive Directors, and can communicate via email or telephone. The intern will be expected to attend committee meetings and check in regularly to report on progress made or challenges faced.
In addition to the bursary provided by Alberta Advanced Education and Technology, the successful applicant will gain knowledge on web development and coding; developing maps that relate to certain neighborhoods, as such strengthening their attention to detail. They will be able to use this project as a sample of their work.
The potential intern is able to credit their name on to the sign-up tool and will be noted on appropriate Target Hunger Press releases.
