What you’ll do
As an intern, you’ll work with our Executive Director (ED) to research and author educational materials for an online personal finance course that we’re going to offer.
The ED will give you an outline of the curriculum, and you’ll fill in the details. For example, if one section of the course was about budgeting, your job would be to research and document the best ways to budget — whether it be through an app, a spreadsheet, or another medium.
You’ll help the ED spread our name throughout the Harlem community, and at large, using social media, online advertising, networking, word of mouth, and any other platforms you can think of. This might involve setting up and promoting a virtual financial literacy event on Facebook, for example.
You’ll sit in on financial counseling sessions, and brainstorm ways to improve them. You’ll also help out with assignment work, such as creating a financial forecast for a client’s small business.
Who we’re looking for
Someone who has:
- An interest in financial literacy, and social justice
- Proactive work habits — but still asks for help, if needed
- Experience with marketing, whether it be through social media, online advertising, or other platforms
- Familiarity with Google Docs
- Research experience
- No problem with working from home
- A degree that they’re pursuing — majoring or minoring in Education is a plus, but not required
- Graphic design experience, but it’s not required
We encourage Black, Indigenous, and people of color to apply, since we’re a majority-BIPOC organization.
