TakePart's parent company is Participant Media, which believes that a good story, well told, can make a difference. Participant’s films, such as An Inconvenient Truth, The Help, Contagion, The Cove and Food Inc, seek to entertain audiences first, and then invite them to participate in effective change. To accomplish this, Participant actively teams with non-profits to create specific avenues to positive involvement. To date, Participant has developed programs and active, working relationships with 156 non-profits. Collectively, we have the potential to reach more than 75 million people.
Experience with Photoshop and Illustrator are a plus, and HTML, and social media experience preferred.
