amaxa connects our users to real problems at global nonprofits. Our flagship program is the amaxa student impact program, a one-of-a-kind leadership program specifically designed for high school students. We have 11 nonprofit partners and counting, and our students are currently solving problems ranging from providing electricity to grandmothers in Uganda to creating juggling workshops for students in Palestine - & much more. Learn more about our program and problems at www.amaxaimpact.org. We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the United States.
While these roles are technically internships because they operate on a semester schedule, our interns are fully part of our team and take on a leadership role within our organization, and as such, we are not only open to, but prefer, candidates who see themselves playing a role in our organization in a longer-term, if possible. While the first semester is unpaid, if you continue with us more than one semester, the role will either become paid or we will provide a one-time stipend (this is simply dependent upon our funds moving forward).
Our blog content creator will be responsible for generating blog articles for a variety of audiences, including high school students interested in social impact, nonprofits, parents, IB Program teachers, and professionals looking for impactful volunteer opportunities. You will be tasked with writing 1-2 articles a week. Usually, one article will be assigned by the CEO and COO based on search engine optimization research (Ex. 10 Ways to Make an Impact as a Teen), and the other article is largely up to your creativity. This is a great opportunity to build a portfolio of original articles about a social issue(s) that is important to you.
The blog is in its early stages, but we want to build it out to be a unique hub of content centered around how someone can truly make an impact and providing easy-to-read articles about major social and humanitarian issues. The idea is, let’s say someone wants to help people in the Yemen War after seeing it in the news: they likely don’t know where to start, not only learning about the war in general, but finding the right organizations to give to or volunteer with. Our blog will post content on urgent humanitarian issues (as well as persistent ones) that give our users a direct guide on how to turn their intention to help into real action (Example “10 Ways to Help the War in Yemen”, “What’s Going on in Yemen - in 5 minutes “, etc)
