OrangeAid wants you!
With the help of the fine people at Jigsaw, the OrangeAid team has been hard at work building the program so it can be the most valuable, rewarding opportunity around. Our experience thus far has been nothing short of excellent. The positive attitudes and fun personalities of our Jigsaw mentors have given us an environment where we’re comfortable sharing our thoughts, pushing the envelope on our ideas and discovering ourselves and each other to make our work turn out much greater than the sum of its parts. We want to give a special shout out to Steven, Sue, Addy, Danielle, Trevor and Madonna who have been influential to our success and helped us navigate the challenges thus far.
Here’s a brief look at the program itself and what it would look like for all of you uber-talented folks who want to apply. It would be no fun if I gave it all away in this blog post, but here are a few of the essentials:
- OrangeAid is not a sit-and-observe style internship, nor will there be unnecessary busy work. You will dive head first into creative pro bono projects for clients around the city, see them through from design to execution, and have the satisfaction of seeing the results in action.
- You will have an unparalleled opportunity to learn, grow and gain exposure to the new and unfamiliar. Members of the OrangeAid team will come from different backgrounds, have different interests, and display unique skills that they’ll share with one another in the collaborative environment of the internship.
- You will be handsomely compensated in school credit, a full communications agency experience, Charlie Sheen’s Tiger Blood, a head start at world domination, and access to a network of talented, passionate and connected industry professionals. (This is code for telling you the internship is unpaid, but it’s worth it.)
- You will need 15-20 flexible hours per week for the summer starting June 1st, with the opportunity for more if desired or necessary for certain projects.
