DoSomething.org makes the world suck less. One of the largest global orgs for young people and social change, our 3.9 million members tackle campaigns that impact every cause, from poverty to violence to the environment to literally everything else. Any cause, anytime, anywhere.
Overview: The Global Strategy Intern is a part of the DoSomething.org Global Team. They are responsible for helping team develop the DoSomething.org global programming with the goal of getting us to 1 million members around the world by 2017.
What you’ll do:
Partner management. Help the International team work with all existing partners by thinking through new member and campaign strategies.
Strategy Creation. We are learning a lot and incorporating these lessons in our framework as we grow. You should be the sort of person who likes problem solving and thinking outside the box.
Research. A lot of it. You should be able to dig out the finer details of what youth organizations are doing what, who amazing social entrepreneurs are, new technologies, etc., but all for other countries. Some of this requires you to cold email or pick up the phone and pick out conversations until you have your answer.
General program admin. Like answering general inquiries about the program, creating a monthly newsletter, and more!
What we’re looking for:
A research fiend. Like you LOVE digging up dirt on people, orgs, etc., via the internet.
A self starter. Our team is small, so we want an intern who can take projects, run with them, solve them & ask questions when appropriate.
SUPER insane attention to detail. And not in a cliche interview response way.
An international-minded person. That is BBC News is your best friend, have a lengthy list of where you’d like to go, and you know that America isn’t the center of the universe.
A challenge. We’re scaling programs in countries where resources and infrastructure are tight (READ: Lots of creative solutions are necessary). We’re looking for someone who can draw their own box.
What you'll learn:
How to take a proven business & cause campaign model in the US and interpret it in different international contexts.
Super sleuth research skills. (Where my Sherlock Holmes at?!)
Flexibility and reliability in a fast-paced office setting
How to be part of a fast paced team that takes to heart the adage “Fail Fast, Fail Often”
