SEO intern (specifically, Squarespace) for mental health nonprofit

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


We are seeking an SEO Intern (or dedicated volunteer) for 2016. We're a mental health awareness organization ( 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.

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 bi-weekly Skype calls.
