INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Social Work and Direct Service Internships

Brooklyn Community Pride Center is proud to serve as a placement site for Social Work (MSW) interns and other students in need of fieldwork hours. We especially welcome interns who are LGBTQ+, BIPOC, or otherwise reflect the community that we serve.

Currently, Brooklyn Community Pride Center is not accepting social work intern applications. If you are interested in a future placement, please check back in early 2022.

Please note that only those people selected for a job interview will receive a response. No phone calls please except for internship inquiries. Only open job positions are posted.

Inclusion and transparency are important core values of Brooklyn Community Pride Center. We make concerted efforts to ensure representation through-out the hiring process and want to be transparent about how we recruit and who is involved in the process.

We are proud that our staff and board reflect the incredible diversity of the LGBTQ+ community! Current staff inherently identify along the LGBTQ+ spectrum and are 36% people of color, 54% white, 45% transgender gender nonconforming and/or feminine spectrum-identifying, and 54% transgender gender nonconforming and/or masculine-identifying. Governing board is 45% people of color, 54% white, 54% transgender gender nonconforming and/or feminine spectrum-identifying, and 45% transgender gender nonconforming and/or masculine-identifying.

While inherent diversity like gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation mentioned above are important to us, acquired diversity involving traits gained from experience are also important because “Diverse, unique thinking and perspectives from a wide variety of employees with different backgrounds and experiences is critical to creating innovation.”*

We believe that multiple perspectives from both inherent and acquired diversity in the hiring process reduces implicit biases while encouraging great-fit candidates to rise to the top.

For all director and manager-level candidates, hiring involves up to three touch points for those who are advanced through the process:

Interview #1: An introductory conversation that covers basic questions on both sides of the relationship.

Interview #2: Interviewers consist of employees, board members, and advisors of the Center. This is a great opportunity to get to know people with whom you would work most closely!

Interview #3: All finalists complete an experiential challenge intended to provide candidates with a deeper understanding of who we are as an organization while engaging them in an authentic task. The resulting work product is shared with leaders of the Brooklyn Center during a fluid conversation.

Associates and assistants participate in a simplified version of the above.

Interviewers who have an existing relationship with a candidate that could compromise a fair and equitable judgement are recused from all interviews of that particular candidate.

Please note that only those people selected for an interview for open positions described above will receive a response. No phone calls please except for internship inquiries. Only open positions are posted.
