Marketing Manager Intern at Social Justice Startup
aCoach.org believes that communities should be experts at changing public policy to achieve greater social justice.
aCoach.org’s platform enables the smallest organizations to wield the policy change skills of better funded, more sophisticated entities. Our trained advocacy coaches co-design social justice campaigns with community organizations and provide the resources needed for success. Our technology scales (10X) more community campaigns for justice, while helping community organizations have an outsized impact. You can review our presentation deck here:
We have created the first version of our platform and are now starting to reach out to community-based organizations interested in changing public or private policies that maintain inequality.
We are looking for an outstanding marketing manager to raise aCoach.org’s profile with community based organizations and to help recruit the first participants interested in creating their own social justice advocacy campaigns. Your work will show how social media and online marketing can engage and activate a diverse group of organizations seeking to address problems in their communities.
This internship is part-time and while being based in the San Francisco Bay Area is preferred, it can be a fully remote role. If all goes well, this will become a paid position in the next few months. For now, you will work closely with all three founders, working most closely with the Head of Product. You will have the opportunity to learn from experienced advocates and build your network.
As an intern, regardless of whether you are remote or working locally in the Bay Area, you will have at least one weekly 60-minute one-on-one meeting with the Head of Product, where you will jointly review the work plan you’ve helped co-develop, as well as the work you’ve completed. We take a collaborative approach to the important work you’ll be doing, so you’ll also join regular calls/meetings with the founding team. You can also reach out to the founding team as needed and you’ll typically get a response within a few hours.
