KIDS MATTER INC. is seeking a fall semester intern to support graphic design and
communication needs for a small, Milwaukee-based nonprofit organization. The intern will be primarily focused on the creation of templates to be used for various outreach activities such as e-newsletters, press releases, donor communication, social media posting, etc. Specific projects and responsibilities will be dictated by the skills and interests of the candidate; however, all projects will involve original content writing, visual identity integration, adherence to existing organizational themes and publishing.

KIDS MATTER INC. was founded in 2000, inspired by the compelling need to improve the lives of the many Milwaukee County children involved in the child welfare system. We are a small grassroots organization that puts volunteer energy into our neediest kids. We work to restore opportunity to abused and neglected youth in Milwaukee. We are parents and concerned citizens of all kinds – foster and kinship parents, birth parents and grandparents, child welfare professionals, health care providers, attorneys, the juvenile justice community – anyone with an interest in the best interests of children. Offices are located at 1850 N Dr. Martin Luther King Drive – Suite 202, Milwaukee, WI 53212.


To Apply: Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, writing sample, two graphic design portfolio pieces, and two references to No phone calls please.

KIDS MATTER INC. is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate in hiring based on race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, etc.


Qualifications: A successful candidate will be expected to work fairly independently based on direction and weekly feedback sessions. Knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite and MS PowerPoint is required, and web design skills (WordPress) are preferred. Knowledge of issues relating to child welfare is helpful, but not required. Flexibility, punctuality, and a respectful sense of humor are important.

Days/Hours: The internship requires a commitment of at least eight hours per week for 8-10 weeks and could start any time after August 15. A regular schedule is preferred, but may be set to avoid conflicts with courses or other employment.

Compensation: A stipend of $500 will be offered for this position.
