Communications intern

Communications is a core aspect of MIRA’s work, and it cuts across everything we do: from organizing, to legislative advocacy, to fundraising. We run Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts, we produce web content, we send out email newsletters and action alerts, and produce videos and print materials.

It’s a ton of work – so we’re looking for some great interns to help us out!

We have 1–3 positions available, depending on interns’ schedules and skill sets. You will join another intern who is staying on from the summer, and be part of a close-knit, warm and friendly team. Minimum commitment of 8 hours per week; up to 20 hours possible.

Ideal candidates are:

  • College seniors, graduate students, or recent college grads looking for hands-on experience.
  • Passionate about social justice, and genuinely interested in immigration, refugees and related policy issues.
  • Excellent writers, preferably with some journalism experience. 
  • Tech-savvy: You may need to learn to use our email blast system, donation platform and website CMS, and/or be asked to do photo or video editing. The more skills you have or are willing to learn, the greater the opportunities you’ll have to do substantive work.
  • Detail-oriented, reliable and good at following directions: Comms is the public face of MIRA. We need to be spot-on in everything we do.
  • Motivated, enthusiastic and happy to come up with ideas.
  • Extra points if you’re an immigrant or child of immigrants, and if you speak (and preferably write) one or more languages beside English.

This internship is unpaid, but we will gladly work with you to ensure you can earn college credit. Start date is flexible, Aug. 28–mid-September.
