Finance & Accounting intern


  • Café's goal of "Ending Human Trafficking One Ethically Sourced Mug at a Time" by aiding in the Freedom Café's organization and financial management. The Freedom Café Finance & Accounting Intern will work directly with the Freedom Café's President and Treasurer to maintain accurate financial management of the Café's operations including investing in a 20 hour Quick Books online course in order to have the necessary skills to further develop our Quick Books category tags, and monthly statements to better match IRS 990 line items.
