Social Media Strategy Intern

Department: Development

Agency Description: Bolder Options is a transformational mentoring program for at-promise youth ages 10-14 in the Twin Cities and Rochester. Mentor pairs meet 2-4 hours every week for at least one year working towards physical health, academic success, and social/emotional health goals. Last year, 100% of graduating pairs elected to continue their relationship post-graduation, and 90% of youth planned to go to college after high school. Our goal is to ensure that the promise of youth in our community is realized, regardless of their life circumstances.

Position Description: Bolder Options is looking for someone to take the lead on the creation of social media content, and to help plan for how to take our social media presence to the next level. As our Social Media Strategy Intern, you will leverage our social media platforms to build awareness and drive engagement. You will interact daily with our social media communities and play a key role in the development of social media strategies and content. This is designed to be a summer internship with flexibility in hours worked and the ability to work remotely.
