DescriptionPovertyTalk is an organization dedicated to improving discourse about poverty, especially among the Millennial population. We want to hold politicians and businesses accountable for their promises, essentially asking "What are you doing for the poorest among us?" We seek to make sure that no politician, government official, or business leader gets to exploit the poor as a talking point. And, we want to make sure there is correct information regarding poverty in mainstream media.
We are in a launch phase right now and need a team of interns to increase our Twitter presence. We currently ask for 1-3 hours per week. 15 minutes here, 10 minutes there-however you think is best. This will be the ultimate exercise in creativity. You will work alongside organization officers in order to develop messages, social media etiquette, etc. However, you ultimately have free reign.
Any intern that wants to donate some time towards this project will go up on the Team/Thank You page. We are 100% committed to making sure that you-and your work-get recognition.
ResponsibilitiesWe ask that you are active on Twitter, 1-3 hours per week. You get to make your own schedule.
Also, once every few weeks you will take part in a call/Skype/chat with the director and other interns. More than simply looking for interns we are looking for a "brain trust"- a group of young, diverse individuals who bring fresh insights and solutions to the table.
RequirementsHave some experience with Twitter, social media etiquette, and attracting followers. We know from experience that your profile is no indicator of how well you will do as an ambassador of the organization.
If you use Twitter somewhat actively and are passionate about information and curing poverty, this is will be fun and meaningful work.
