About Breakthrough Silicon Valley

Breakthrough Silicon Valley launches talented but underserved middle school students on the path to college, while at the same time inspiring high school and college students to become educators. While ambitious in our goals, BTSV works: a stunning 99% of BTSV graduates are accepted into four-year colleges and 74% of BTSV Teaching Fellows are inspired to pursue a career in education as a result of their summer experience.

BTSV’s tuition-free program provides year-round out of school time academic support, advising, and advocacy for a diverse group of talented students, most of whom come from under-resourced communities and are first in their family to go to college. Through our students-teaching-students model, BTSV also provides a consummate professional development experience in education by providing talented high school and college students the opportunity to design and teach classes under the direction of seasoned education professionals.

Located in San Jose, California, Breakthrough Silicon Valley is an affiliate of The Breakthrough Collaborative, a leading national service organization that acts as the national voice for 24 Breakthrough sites across the country.

The Position

BTSV’s internships prepare the next generation of leaders through a hands-on, impactful internship experience at a highly effective nonprofit organization. Throughout the internship, the Development Intern will be coached and supervised by our experienced BTSV staff. You’ll learn the ins and outs of nonprofit fundraising, get design and social media experience, and develop event planning and project management skills.


Each day throughout the summer will look different: You’ll assist with the planning and execution of multiple volunteer and donor events, both virtually and in person; execute mailings, including appeals and acknowledgment letters; research prospective donors; and make sure our Salesforce data is up-to-date. You’ll also support BTSV’s communications and marketing, including posting on social media, making updates to BTSV’s website, and taking photos and videos.

The Development Intern reports to BTSV’s Sr. Director of Development.

What background and skills do you have?:

  • Experience with design programs such as Adobe Creative Suite and Canva
  • Experience with social media platforms, especially TikTok and Instagram
  • Proficient with MS Office and Google Suite, including Excel/Sheets
  • Ability to plan, organize, and implement projects with attention to detail
  • Creative problem-solver with a can-do attitude; willing to support where needed
  • Communicative and able to responsibly pose questions and ask for clarification whenever necessary
  • Commitment to Breakthrough Silicon Valley’s mission and goals as well as a passion for educational equity

Bonus points if:

  • You’re majoring in marketing, communications, nonprofit management or other related fields
  • You have experience with photo and/or video editing
  • You have experience with Salesforce
  • You’re bilingual (Spanish or Vietnamese)
  • You have experience at a nonprofit youth development or educational organization, particularly one focused on college access for first-generation students and students of color
