Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri (PPKM) is offering summer internships. It’s an exciting time in our affiliate’s history. We are approaching our 80th anniversary and, under new, dynamic leadership, are growing in size and scope. PPKM is looking for interns who are excited to join in the fight to protect reproductive and sexual health care rights. Our summer internship program will provides the opportunity to concentrate on an area of interest, while giving some flexibility in exploring other departments and functions of running a non-profit that focuses on sexual and reproductive health care, education and advocacy. This summer we are offering internships in the following areas. Public Affairs (Overland Park administrative office, 4401 W. 109th): Educating the public, supporters, and legislators on public policy issues related to reproductive health and rights.

Assist with drafting and editing correspondence, proposals, and various levels of fundraising appeals. Provide support for other ongoing fund development activities including event planning, mailings, filing, meetings, and other special projects as needed. Education (This internship will be located at our mid-town site, 1001 Emanuel Cleaver Blvd, KCMO): Provide comprehensive, medically accurate sex education to schools and community agencies. Maintain the education database; track outcomes and assist in developing reports.
