Description

You get things done, you bring new energy, and you’re interested in disability & startups?

We Want You!

Who are we?
We’re disabled and proud! 2Gether-International fosters disability pride and identity through education. Same way you learn about racial issues or women’s rights, students should learn about disability. The largest minority worldwide!


What we do?
We run workshops, discussions and summits with high school
and college students about disability. And the occasional
awareness/fundraising campaign.

What’s in it for you?


Academic Credit!
Heck yeah, we give our interns academic credit. (And we think it’s crappy
that other companies don’t!)

Real responsibility
You will report to one person, have your own projects with clear goals,
and be reviewed. No coffee runs here; the work you do will matter.

Fun
This matters. All interns and staff hangout at least once a week!

Growth
Most likely you’ll be invited to meetings with CEOs or representatives
from the State Department, the World Bank, among others. Lots to learn!

Hmm. It must be a pretty terrific place to work, huh? Apply!

Responsibilities

Executive Associate
You’re a multi-tasker! You embrace a challenge and succeed in the unexpected. You love to do a little bit of everything but also explore new things. You are also passionate about getting people to get active, and know the best strategies to do so. In this role you will be assisting our CEO in everything from data collection, to meeting planning, to board management.

Campaign Director-One for One Billion
You’re a music maniac! You know all about music and everything behind the scenes. This year is the 25th anniversary of the ADA (the most important US disability law) and we are planing a massive music campaign with mainstream artists and deaf singer/songwriters. In this role you will be heavily involved in the planing of this campaign (A passion for Youtube artists is a MAJOR +).

Campaign Director- Art Exhibit
You’re an Arts Guru! You’ve got an incredible passion for art, whether it is in an exhibition at the Smithsonian or right across the street. We host an annual Art Exhibit showcasing different cultural perceptions towards disability. This year artists from France, Mexico and the US will be participating. In this role you will be the master mind behind this campaign.

Program & Manual Development Intern
You’re on your way towards your PHD or at least towards becoming a published author. You spend your weekends rewriting and re-editing your already perfect papers. This is important work! We need to move the structure of our high school and college chapters in to an awesome and comprehensive packet so that more students can replicate our model. In this role you might also work on grant writing and business development proposals.

Finance Intern
You’re all about the money! You understand the value proposition and competitive advantage of companies. You know that hopes and dreams are lovely but we all need money to make good stuff happen. In this role you will work to develop, foster and target corporate sponsors so that they don’t just pay us to do good stuff, they do it with us. You will also work on grant writing and business development proposals.

Marketing & Social Media Intern
You live in the marketing & media world. You spend your day creating impactful marketing plans and making media buys. Your life is about driving traffic to brands. In this role you will work to expand our presence both online and off. Don’t be afraid to do everything from cold-calling potential media partners to imagining a smart integrated partnership, to account management.

Requirements

Would I want to be in a bunker with you?
We’re going to spend more time with you than with our family or friends. Do we like you? Are you passionate about disability and/or students?

Can you hit a home run in three weeks?
We move fast. You’ve got to keep up. Does this freak you out? Do you need lots of instructions and directions? Then this isn’t for you. We want self-starters. We don’t really care how much experience you have, but we do want the kind of person who can hit the ground running and make stuff happen.

Are you going to be doing something amazing in four to six years?
We want best-in-class people. Maybe you’ll still be with us in four years, or
maybe you’ll be launching your own biodegradable sneaker line. That’s cool.
We just want people who are capable of the AMAZING!

Make mistakes! Otherwise you’re fired
If you work with us for 2-3 months and you don’t make a mistake you’re fired (or at
least you won’t get a letter of recommendation). We are pushing the envelope and
you don’t know how far you can push unless you overcome fear of failure. We try new
things! If they fail we move on.
