I don’t see how this would be any different from getting a job at a for-profit organization.
My general advice in these matters is to find the organization that you want to work with, research it thoroughly, and find a way that you can add value.
Then, find the right person within the organization (via research) and approach them with your value proposition. Don’t be afraid of rejection – be persistent, helpful and courteous.
