Are you a news hound, storyteller, or social media whiz? Join AMP Global Youth as a Content Creator!
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.
The Content Creator plays a key role in sparking conversations around global challenges and the power of youth via online, via our social media accounts (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook), and/or through creating short videos on timely topics (shared on Youtube and IGTV). This is a great opportunity to build writing, video, social media, and/or graphic design skills.
We are seeking support in the following two areas. Applicants can choose one or both.
- SOCIAL MEDIA: The Social Media Content Creator will spark conversation on AMP’s social media accounts (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) by sharing clever and provocative content around global issues, youth leadership and/or social change. This could include sharing short commentary on breaking news, developing graphics explaining a global challenge, creating an Instagram story about an issue, designing a poll or quiz, filming a short video, and more. The more unique and creative, the better. The Creatorr is responsible for pitching, developing, and posting the content from start to finish. The Social Media Content Creator must commit to at least 8 posts over the course of two months (1/week), and will get training on how to use relevant tools and access our accounts.
- VIDEO DEVELOPMENT: The Video Content Creator tells the story of global youth and the biggest global challenges facing our generation through short videos (3-8 minutes). The Curator will identify great stories, film (on phone, tablet or laptop) and edit them, and promote them online through IGTV and Youtube. They will also help us evolve and refine our video strategy on an ongoing basis. The Video Content Creator must commit to at least three videos, and will receive training on how to use relevant tools and access our accounts.
Our programs are growing quickly, and the Content Creators will have the opportunity to play an essential hands-on role making sure we do an exceptional job presenting, connecting and building our brand and programs.
This is a contract position for self-starters with a strong interest in global issues, media, video and/or graphic design. Successful applicants are extremely comfortable with these skills, but they don’t need previous professional experience of any sort. They should also have the equipment to do this work (i.e. phone, tablet and/or computer). They are also extremely reliable, and have 2-3 hours/week on an ongoing basis to complete this work.
Benefits of working with AMP:
Creators commit to a minimum amount of content over the semester (either 3 videos or 8 social media posts). These are paid positions, at the equivalent of $15/hour.
