You’ll need to get in the weeds and be a team player to help us execute on our diverse set of client projects.
  • Research. Whether that means finding trends on teen financial literacy for one of our clients, looking into new social media platforms to inform our work, or researching the background of a new organization/company we’re pitching to, you’ll be expected to not only gather information but to also bring your own ideas/suggestions to the table based on your learnings.
  • Writing. We may ask you to do create research summaries that will be sent directly to clients, or to own an email inbox that helps students who are applying to one of our scholarship programs. Either way, you’ll need to be ready and excited to write!
  • Creative Ideation. We have regular brainstorms and creative thinking sessions—we expect our interns to bring their creative juices to the table as well!
