Social Media Marketing - Unpaid Internship at Teen Line

Bookmark This


Teen Line is a 501c3 non-profit established to help troubled teenagers in a way they would accept - teens helping teens. It is our mission to provide a safety net for teenagers before their problems become a crisis through our hotline, website and community outreach programs. Each year, over 16,000 teens call, email, or text message the hotline, which is staffed by volunteer teen listeners and supervised by adult mental health professionals.

We are a casual office culture with dedicated, fun people who are passionate about our mission to support teens' mental health and well-being. We are looking for an individual who can be an active member of our team and knows the value of hard work, but understands that laughter is important. We feel this provides a unique opportunity for a self-directed person who really wants to put their skills and expertise to work to help others.
