Description

overview
Building Tomorrow, Inc. (BT), an international social-profit organization empowering young people to invest their resources, time and talents in providing students in East Africa with access to an education, has tons of great stories to tell about its work abroad. We’re seeking motivated college students with fresh ideas to help us share our work through a variety of media platforms. Storytelling interns will work together to create compelling visual content for Building Tomorrow to share with college chapters, current and potential donors, and supporters.

the organization
Started in 2006, Building Tomorrow currently works with a growing network of over 25 collegiate chapters to directly support the construction of community-sponsored primary schools throughout rural Uganda. To date, Building Tomorrow has completed 15 primary schools, providing safe classroom space for over 4,000 students with a full-time staff of four in the US and ten in Uganda.

the format
Building Tomorrow believes that creativity, innovation, and learning require idea sharing and collaborative environments. To facilitate collaboration, Building Tomorrow employs a unique internship model called a paired internship program. Within the construct of the paired internship program, two part-time interns are hired for each intern project. Intern pairs will work together to generate innovative ideas and complete assigned projects.
