American Muslim Initiative
26 E 91st
New York, NY
DescriptionAMI is a nonprofit organization that was created to help advocate the stories that youth all over America go through. People from all over the world submit their stories on Culture, Appearance, Career, Religious Awareness in Society, Media, Relationships, Discrimination, Mental health, Social Life and Religion, Education, Bullying and Gender Roles. We then take these stories and we compile them into a book in which we publish with Iuniverse, Amazon, Penguin and Ithica! Every year we come up with a new book.
AMI is not only limited to Muslims (American Muslim Initiative) we believe in giving back to the community at large. We try to foster an environment that will help build bridges between society's misconceptions on all religions not just Islam.
We are currently looking for an intern who want to create something new and exciting. We will be wanting to start up a magazine with stories, or previews of stories events and things that are going on in the New York Area. Your job will not only be to photograph for the newsletter but also photograph for any ongoing events. We will help you create a portfolio that you can present to the working world and any photographs you take you will get credit for. We will help network you to other companies so that you can get a feel of what it's like to be a professional photographer!
We do offer class credit. If you need a letter of recommendation we will be happy to write it for you. If you are very good at your job then you will have room to build up and you can potentially get paid. (Within a year). (Some of the work is virtual).
