Internship: Mosaic Outreach & Marketing

Washington DC, United States /
Development, Marketing, & Communications – Washington DC - HQ /
Overview: Work with the world’s largest dedicated peacebuilding organization to grow a new, youth-led initiative. 
We are seeking interns to take the lead on shaping Mosaic, a new sub-brand that aims to support youth activists to translate their activism into systemic change through collaborative action — working across divides without compromising your values and beliefs. Through social media content and virtual skills-building experiences, we help activists who are facing pushback / backlash in their efforts to create change learn how to use collaborative — not just adversarial — tactics to uncover breakthrough, win-win solutions and catalyze enduring change that has widespread support.
As the Mosaic Outreach & Marketing intern, you will be working closely with the Children & Youth team and the Development, Marketing, and Communications team to provide writing, digital content creation, research, project management, and creative support. The intern will play a key role in designing and implementing a variety of marketing, branding, communications, and program development initiatives.
If you are a student and would like to earn course credit from your internship, we are willing to work with you to develop a comprehensive workload that is relevant to your field of study and professional interests. 
We want our interns to make the most of this experience. To this end, we ask every intern to develop a set of strategic learning objectives at the beginning of their internship with their supervisor, outlining their key learning and professional needs. Search for Common Ground’s staff will work with you to ensure assignments are relevant to these learning objectives, and that you continue to grow throughout your internship.  
While we’d prefer our interns be in-person, we can accommodate remote interns. This advertisement is for summer/fall 2022 interns.
