Fall Mktg/Social Media Intern
































We are seeking a Marketing/Social Media college intern - ideally someone studying psychology or social work, or even marketing with an interest in mental health - to help us with various projects. This is an unpaid internship, but offers excellent experience in a non-profit entrepreneurial environment with the opportunity to contribute your ideas and have your voice heard as a valuable contributor to the team.

Our physical location is Ashburn, Virginia, but we also work out of home offices so this will be a work-from-home opportunity, with meetings in person at the office once a week to go over work and set new assignments.

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

  • Video production skills (Animoto or iMovie) a plus

This is an exciting chance to get involved - and have a voice - with an organization which is on the leading edge of social change when it comes to the way society views mental illness. This internship position will start June 1, 2018 and would run through August, until the intern needs to return to school.
