About

We are seeking a Social Media Volunteers or Interns for the remainder of 2016 and beyond. We're a mental health awareness organization (http://www.thisismybrave.org) and are gearing up for an amazing year of growth. My estimate is this role requires 5-15 hours of work per week, with slightly more hours around our busy seasons (May-June and Sept-Oct).

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 new 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.

We are seeking a Social Media Volunteer or 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 position/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.

Requirements:

  • Local to the DC metro area
  • Social media savvy (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google+, SnapChat, Facebook Live, YouTube)
  • Ability to travel to Ashburn, VA twice a month for meetings
  • 5-15 hours a week
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Must work well independently
  • Creative thinker, not afraid to offer up ideas for new and unique ways to reach our target audience
  • Video production skills (iMovie, Premier) 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 will be a volunteer position starting in August or possibly sooner. Would love to speak with anyone who might be interested in learning more! To apply, please email: jennifer(at) thisismybrave.org and submit your resume and a video clip (can be shot on your smartphone or using a computer's webcam) telling us why you're interested in joining our team.
