Do you want to be a HOLLA intern?

Hollaback! Boston has an opening for an intern for the spring semester, with the potential for longer-term involvement, and we would love to hear from YOU! Start date would be no later than February 1, 2014. We are looking for 10-15 hours per week. Queer-identified candidates and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Organizing, managing, and expanding our college campus campaign

  • Promoting the site and events

  • Contributing to the blog

  • Helping to generate graphics and design for social media

  • Searching for content to be shared on our sites that is in line with the HOLLA mission

  • Managing email correspondence

  • Brainstorming ways to increase our reach and readership

  • Helping to organize and promote events

  • Attending monthly team meetings and webinars

  • Being a creative, motivated, and passionate person who helps us fuel the movement and think of new ways to hollaback!

We do have specific things that we know we will need your help with, but we’re also really open to making this internship something that fits your interests and strengths.

You should:

  • Read up on what we do and see what you think. Please have some knowledge of the Hollaback! movement in general and what our team has been doing here in Boston before you show up to the interview. We want to know that you have some investment in what we’re trying to accomplish.

  • Feel strongly that our mission is one you believe in. Tell us what YOU want to bring to our movement. What are we missing? What could we be doing better? How could your skills fit our work?

  • Be comfortable taking initiative. We will provide some direction, but we want you to be unafraid to jump in with both feet and get the ball rolling on your own.

  • Be ready for anything.

  • Want to be part of a team of strong individuals who have lots to teach you but are super excited to learn things from you, too.

Compensation and benefits:

  • This is an unpaid internship.

  • However, there are concrete benefits to taking this internship position! You will have experience working with an organization that is unfunded and volunteer-run– creativity is always necessary! You will have the opportunity to run your own campaign and design it in whatever way you think is best. You will gain experience writing curriculum and facilitating workshops. You will have the opportunity to be nominated for awards, grants, and scholarships that we access through our network.

Interested? To apply, send a resume and cover letter to boston@ihollaback.org.

We actively denounce the notion that street harassment is culturally accepted and that victims somehow "deserve" it. Through raising awareness and sharing experiences, we hope to put an end to catcalling, groping, stalking, public masturbation, assaults, racial slurs, and other forms of street harassment. Because we believe we have the power to create a world where we can feel hot, confident, and badass, while still feeling safe!
