World Savvy's mission is to educate and engage youth in community and world affairs, to prepare them to learn, work and live as responsible global citizens in the 21st century. Since founding in 2002, World Savvy has been providing direct programs for middle and high school youth and professional development for K-12 teachers. Through these programs, World Savvy seeks to engender systemic and long-term impact on K-12 education and foster a school culture which provides students with the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes conducive to responsible global citizenship. In 2010-11, World Savvy served more than 2400 students from 33 schools throughout the Bay Area.
The Media and Arts Program is an arts education program for middle and high school youth in New York and San Francisco. Through the MAP youth use their own lives and communities as a platform to examine a global theme – Sustainable Communities - using visual arts, performance and media. The MAP prepares youth to exhibit and perform projects during a Festival in the spring. This program illuminates the connections between community and world affairs and helps young people learn to use art and media as tools for self-expression, dialogue, and community engagement.
In addition to supporting the various aspects of the Media and Arts Program (listed below), with the support of the MAP team, each intern will create a project that uses their individual skill set to support/ embellish the Media & Arts program. For example, if the incoming intern has strong writing and journalism skills with a focus on the arts, a project can be to start a category in World Savvy's blog that focuses on the theme of the year (currently Sustainable Communities) and how WS students are exploring it. Some of this material can also be posted on World Savvy's social networking sites. This project would include documenting ongoing programming and interviewing students at workshops and fieldtrips through the year. The intern can also work towards making connections with local media outlets by pitching original articles they write about World Savvy.
This is an unpaid internship. We provide equal employment opportunity for all applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin status, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status or disability.
