MEDIAGIRLS seeks undergraduate women to teach our weekly after-school program in Greater Boston. We are a local non-profit that teaches middle-school girls how to harness the power of media for positive change particularly through the sue of social media.
You and your co-volunteer teachers will use our standardized curriculum to teach girls how to challenge the mainstream media message that sex appeal matters most, and create empowering content for our blog.
Our ten-week classes are once a week on either Tues, Wed, or Thursday, for approximately 80 minutes in the afternoon from October – December, and again from February – May. Total time for the internship (including prep, travel to schools, and other tasks) is approximately 6-7 hours per week, and we require a commitment of at least two consecutive semesters. Training takes place January 20th and 21st.
Applicants should have experience working with girls ages 11 to 14, strong organizational skills, passion for the mission, and a sense of humor. Spanish speaking is a bonus.
