Our mission is to build a movement of 100MM Global Citizens whose actions will help achieve our vision of a world without extreme poverty by 2030.
Global Citizen is a movement of engaged citizens who are using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030. On our platform, Global Citizens learn about the systemic causes of extreme poverty, take action on those issues, and earn rewards for their actions — as part of a global community committed to lasting change.
One of the key ways we can grow that movement is through the editorial content on GlobalCitizen.org and its partner channels: stories, videos, and social media that bring the important human rights issues of the world to readers where they are. This is journalism with a purpose; content-creation to help make the world a better place for all.
So far, more than 13 million actions have been taken by Global Citizens, leading to $35 billion commitments being made by world leaders, which are set to affect 1.3 billion lives by 2030
We're currently looking for a passionate, focused and organized intern to work with Global Citizen’s Editorial Team for the Spring 2018 Semester.
The Global Citizen Editorial Intern will research, pitch, and write stories for GlobalCitizen.org, help out with video creation and social media scheduling, and assist with myriad internal and administrative tasks. This is a writing-intensive position. Familiarity with daily news sites and journalism practices are required. A strong interest in one or more of our issue areas — Girls & Women, Health, Environment, Food & Hunger, Education, Water & Sanitation, Finance & Innovation, and Citizenship — is helpful.
We are a small, hardworking, nimble team excited about trying out new content ideas on the web and looking for excited, ambitious writers to help us build an effective strategy to grow the Global Citizen movement. This internship has the potential for great opportunities for an ambitious candidate.
If interested, please send resume, cover letter, 2-3 writing samples, one of which should be non-academic, and the names and contact details for two references.
