Corporate Accountability International - Online Advocacy Internship (Boston, MA)
For 35 years, Corporate Accountability International has successfully challenged corporations like Nestlé, General Electric, and Philip Morris to halt abusive practices that threaten human rights, public health, the environment and our democracy. The organization is leading campaigns challenging some of the world's most powerful industries in food and agriculture, water and tobacco. Our internships are a unique opportunity to gain valuable organizing and non-profit experience. This is a hands-on program, designed to mentor and cultivate students interested in social justice, strengthen their understanding of a fast-paced campaign organization, and prepare them with the skills and experience necessary to challenge corporate abuse.
The Online Advocacy Internship is a skills-building internship in which interns will take on significant projects to advance Corporate Accountability International's mission, support campaign work and assist the communications team. The intern will gain experience updating the website, designing visual assets, assisting in outreach to the Online Action Network and online social networks and researching social reach for allies and key constituencies. The projects will be coupled with training sessions on action planning, campaign research, media outreach, fundraising and many other topics.
