Interns play a key role in helping us further what we do as an organization and in expanding our ability to fulfill our mission: to invest in the coffee farms of families in Rwanda to create generational change.

– Create social media and print content using Adobe

– Writing copy for fundraising campaigns

– Writing drafts for the Kula blog weekly

– Assist in website updates (SquareSpace)

– Researching blogs, websites, social media connections for Kula

– Help generate and maintain monthly Kula newsletters

– Assist in any applicable fundraising opportunities

Qualifications:

This most important quality in this position is creativity. The ideal candidate will have strong interpersonal skills, proven writing and journalism skills, experience with Adobe and Squarespace, and in-depth knowledge with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest promotions.
