Eyes Wide Open Mentoring is a new, Anacostia-based nonprofit organization that pairs adult mentors to work one-on-one with homeless, middle school-aged children living in D.C. Our mission is to empower our young people to succeed despite the challenges posed by homelessness.

EWOM is looking for a local college or graduate student to assist with its communications operations, especially overseeing and generating content for our social media platforms, primarily Facebook and Twitter.

We expect the Communications Intern to be familiar with local media (online, radio, TV, and print, including media who are East of the River) and be willing to forge partnerships with influential members of the media to spread our message. The intern should be familiar with the issues surrounding family and child homelessness in the city and be sensitive to the privacy issues surrounding telling the stories of our families.

The intern will also be expected to contribute ideas for our quarterly newsletter, conduct interviews and write short articles on topics of interest to our followers.

We would like the intern to be able to film and produce short videos for our website:

The intern is expected to work a minimum of 10-15 hours per week. This internship is unpaid.

Come volunteer your time to help a great group of homeless youth!
