About the Opportunity

Conveners.org develops programs, tools, and resources to unlock the collective potential of the Impact Ecosystem to change the world. A registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, Conveners.org manages two flagship programs that increase coordination among impact-focused conveners and accelerators.

We are seeking a resourceful and diligent Graphic Design Intern with a modern design aesthetic and exceptionally strong creative chops who will support the creation of visual design elements associated with a special online report.

This person is an A-player who can thrive in a startup environment and is interested in pursuing a career in graphic design, and wants to use their creative skills to support a mission-driven organization.

In addition, this is a unique opportunity to gain experience while developing creative material to add to your professional design portfolio.
