New Media Advocacy Project Description

The New Media Advocacy Project (N-Map) is a non-profit organization that combats human rights violations by using digital video and other media to strengthen social justice advocacy in courts, legislatures, and communities.  N-Map’s lawyers, advocates, and media professionals help human rights organizations integrate technology directly into their strategies, enabling them to win their cases and achieve their clients’ goals more effectively.

 

Job Description:

N-Map is looking for a part-time Development Intern in our NYC office! We are a small and dynamic non-profit organization; so although you’ll mainly work with development staff, our interns get a deep look into many facets of our organization: communications, administration, human rights law and advocacy, and media production.

The ideal candidate has a deep commitment to human rights and public service, with some knowledge of media and film production. Applicants must be able to commit at least 18 hours/week. While the schedule is somewhat flexible, we prefer the intern to work on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Unfortunately, we cannot offer academic credit for this internship; however, you’ll have the opportunity to work with our newly-formed development team as they craft a foundational fundraising strategy.

 

Qualifications

  • Commitment to human rights advocacy
  • Interest in non-profit fundraising, management, and development
  • Strong research skills with an ability to synthesize data
  • Advanced writing and editing skills
