About

This Is My Brave is seeking a Marketing/Social Media Intern for the summer of 2017. We're a national mental health awareness organization (http://www.thisismybrave.org) and we're experiencing an amazing year of growth - our biggest year yet! Our estimate is this role requires 10-15 hours of work per week.

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 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 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.

Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

  • Data entry into our database
  • Scheduling of weekly social media content
  • Writing thank you notes and inspirational quotes to include with our Brave Gear orders
  • Assisting with organizing of Alumni gatherings
  • Merchandising and marketing of Brave Gear
  • and more to be determined

Requirements:

  • MUST BE Local to the DC metro area
  • Social media savvy (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Google+, YouTube)
  • Ability to travel to Ashburn, VA bi-weekly (or do Skype meetings)
  • 5-10 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 (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 ASAP. 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.
