About

We seek the most outstanding undergraduate student leaders as unpaid on-campus interns / club founders for the 2012-2013 school year. Apply to join us and collaborate on the boldest nonprofit initiative we know.

Benefits: This internship / founder position offers a unique opportunity to:

1. help millions of K-12 students get the well-equipped classrooms they need to thrive

2. build your already-considerable communications, networking and leadership skills, and enhance your resume with an impressive record of accomplishment

3. connect with remarkable students on your campus and across the country

Competitive: You must be passionate, dedicated, energetic, responsible, creative and a charismatic leader. You must have a record of taking initiative to make things happen. This is an outstanding high-impact, high-visibility opportunity in an innovative and entrepreneurial nonprofit organization, and selection is highly competitive.

We are tackling a crisis in education: Few schools have enough classroom resources for kids to perform at their best. Books, computers, art supplies, musical instruments, science equipment, sports equipment, and even paper for computers and printers are all in desperately short supply.

Our Approach: ClassWish . org, an exciting new nonprofit, uses modern business practices and the latest innovations in marketing and social media to help attract support for 56 million kids. Teachers visit the site to create Wish Lists of the resources they need. People in the community see exactly what is needed and contribute to help. We ship the materials right to the schools at no cost, so kids and teachers get the support they need.

About Us: The people behind ClassWish.org include such prominent education and business leaders as Adam Hirsch, former COO, Mashable; Laurie Coots, CMO, TBWA; Scott Cutler, EVP, New York Stock Exchange; Betsy Morgan, former CEO, Huffington Post; Nancy Pelz-Paget, Director, Education and Society Program, Aspen Institute; Sharon Robinson, CEO, American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education. Forbes Magazine liked our approach so much that they donated a full page to help raise awareness. Yo-Yo Ma, Tony Hawk and Dwight Howard are among the celebrities who have offered to help promote ClassWish.org.

The work: Teachers and students are already getting supplies from ClassWish.org. Now, we are building a movement to raise awareness of the dire situation in schools, to let more teachers know that ClassWish can improve their classrooms, and to get more people and businesses to contribute and help.

We are building ClassWish-Campus Nation, a national network of ClassWish college clubs to improve the education and lives of millions of students through a wide range of innovative advocacy, marketing, media, social media, celebrity, and fundraising campaigns. Clubs will engage other student organizations to participate in our community service programs and individual students to participate in our online micro-volunteering program.

What we offer: As a ClassWish intern and club founder, you will enhance your resume with a solid record of achievement and community service, and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped countless students get the tools they need to perform at their best.

If you are an outstanding student leader and want a great experience doing something you will always be proud of, please see http://ClassWish-Campus.org.
