This Is My Brave is seeking a Video and multimedia Intern (or dedicated volunteer) for the final quarter of 2017. We're a mental health awareness organization ( and are experiencing significant growth. We estimate this role requires 10-15 hours of work per week and is a great fall internship opportunity for a college student.

This Is My Brave, Inc. provides a platform and a community for people affected by mental illness to share their stories through theater programs and community events. Our mission as a non-profit organization is to ignite and actively promote a positive, national conversation on mental illness to end the stigma surrounding mental health disorders. We believe that every time we share a story, there's another crack helping to break down the stigma of mental illness.

This is an unpaid internship, but offers excellent experience in a non-profit entreprenuerial 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 work out of home offices so this will be a work-from-home opportunity, with meetings in person (or via Skype) every other week to go over work and set new assignments.

  • Video production skills and experience

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 will be a volunteer position starting in October. Would love to speak with anyone who might be interested in learning more!
