The New Leaders Initiative (NLI) is seeking an Online Engagement intern for Fall 2013! As an intern with NLI, you'll be involved in the exciting process of elevating bold, emerging, young leaders in the environmental movement through the Brower Youth Award as well as our various year-round programs. You will be exposed to some of the leading grassroots and national youth-led efforts and have the opportunity to learn the ins-and-outs of working in an environmental non-profit. A typical day could consist of working in our office, conducting outreach on the phone and email, performing various research tasks, helping to organize an educational event, or promoting our work through various social media outlets. There may also be occasional visits to schools, organizations and to youth and environmental events around the Bay Area.
• Archiving Program Data: Aggregate and organize program information to help create content for our website and social media platforms.
• Online Engagement: Research youth organizations with an online presence and outreach to them via the New Leaders Initiatives' various web platforms.
• Updating Web Channels: Updating the New Leaders Initiative Youtube, Vimeo and other multi-media accounts with content for our busy Fall season.
Interns should commit 12-30 hours weekly. Internships will last 3-4 months.
Resourcefulness and the ability and desire to take initiative and follow through projects until completion is essential. The intern must also be able to articulate needs to the rest of the New Leaders Initiative team. Familiarity with Google Drive (Spreadsheet, Maps and Forms especially) and social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Youtube) is necessary. Graphic design skills familiarity is a plus! And of course, a strong interest in youth environmental activism is key.
You will be interacting with some of our nation's most dynamic young activists. Hone your people skills, organizing tools, web skills and get your feet wet with one of the best youth environmental organizations out there! In addition, we're located in the David Brower Center- a hub of amazing and diverse environmental and social change organizations. Our office atmosphere is friendly, warm and relaxed!
