Reports to: Lead Strategist, TMI
TMI is a strategy group built for clients that want to activate young people and fuel meaningful social impact campaigns. We’re the consulting arm of DoSomething.org, one of the largest global organizations for young people and social change. We are fueled by DoSomething.org’s proprietary data from its over 5.5 million members involved in more than 270 cause initiatives. So, we deeply understand what motivates young people to connect with companies and causes they care about. Our clients are for-profit companies, not-for-profit organizations, and foundations. Clients include Spotify, Feeding America, Microsoft, College Board, Foot Locker, and the Malala Fund.
As a team within DoSomething.org, TMI has all of the benefits of being part of an award-winning 23-year-old not-for-profit while still operating like a fast-growing start-up. If you’re a fan of karaoke, Toto’s “Africa,” passionate people, and getting shit done to have positive impact on people, the planet, or both— check us out at TMIstrategy.org.
