AMP Global Youth was founded by students eager to take action around global issues. Through training programs and campaigns, we amplify the voice and power of global youth. Students lead much of our work, and we’re looking for the best and brightest in 2018! Is that you? Read on!
The Student Mobilization Intern supports AMP actions and campaigns around global issues including food justice, diversity, immigration, climate change, interfaith understanding, and more. The Intern works as part of a broader team, leading and releasing content around monthly themes. This is a great opportunity to learn how to create and execute engaging, meaningful campaigns, and basics for mobilizing people to take action. And refine the basics of drafting and tracking actions.
- DEVELOPING STRATEGY and ACTIONS: Working with the broader team, identify monthly actions to promote to our network based on our monthly themes. Actions will range from advocacy (for example, contacting a decision maker), to community (for example mobilizing your school or club to do something) to personal (for example, personal pledges or challenges). This will include everything from writing petition language, to developing kits to mail to student clubs.
- PROMOTING CAMPAIGNS across social media, and to our broad youth network.
- ENGAGING STUDENTS and campuses across the country to take action, for example through email and social media.
Successful applicant should be a strong writer and creative thinker. AMP Interns are confident communicators; enthusiastic about leadership development, social change, and advocacy; passionate about global issues facing our generation; and dedicated to collaboration with fellow team-members. We’ll provide support and training on the tools and skills you’ll need to succeed. We are a virtual organization, so interns must be self-starters and reliable too.
Benefits of working with AMP:
All team members receive ongoing training and support. We are a hands-on network: team members build real, marketable skills (no photocopying here!). They also benefit from working with an inspired community of young global leaders committed to securing youth engagement around global challenges.
Interns work 8 hours/week for a minimum of 12 weeks beginning in January 2018. We are a virtual community, so intern will work virtually using their own computer. Interns are required to join weekly team calls, at times agreed upon by the entire team early in the semester.
