Marketing and Strategy InternBookmark This
DescriptionThe MindBright Foundation is a non-profit consultancy that seeks to provide effective mental health services for the underserved communities in New York City. Working with a network of mental health experts, we develop and implement programs for partner organizations which are committed to improving the lives of those who do not have the resources to properly treat their mental illnesses. The MindBright Foundation was started by two 25-year old residents of NYC who are experienced in the mental health field and are passionate about making a difference.
This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic and outside of the box thinker to help move the MindBright Foundation to the next level through marketing and social media campaigns.
The internship will include opportunities to: plan and execute marketing plans, social media campaigns, fundraising initiatives and a wide variety of other marketing and communications projects/initiatives.
We just recently began operations and believe that our intern can play a vital role in the growth of our nonprofit. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to make an immediate impact on an organization that already has an established Board of Directors/consultants. Hours are flexible and school credit may be available depending on the requirements of your institution.
