Description

The Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) was founded in 1957 to find adoptive homes for children and teens waiting in foster care, including sibling groups and children who are traditionally harder to place. We do this by recruiting, educating, supporting and advocating for families throughout the adoption process. 

MARE’s Communications Department is seeking a highly motivated video production intern for the Fall of 2019 (September - December). The video production intern will work to produce high quality video segments and photos that promote MARE's work and raise awareness about adoption from foster care. This internship will provide an ideal training ground for an intern to put their video skills into action in the real world. We will be pursuing an aggressive content creation schedule, so the intern for this position will quickly gain experience in all aspects of unscripted, documentary style video production.

If you are a creative with journalistic flair, looking to sharpen your skills in videography, editing, photography, interviewing, and writing - this is your ideal internship.

Our flagship video program consists of creating videos for children in foster care, to aid in the recruitment of adoptive families. An example video can be found here: https://youtu.be/eR5xq7Onz1o
