Internship Description: 
Wanted: Sustainable Tourism Social Media Intern (Part-Time)
BeachCorps is looking for a Social Media Intern currently in college to work for us 15 hours a week for a 3 month period with a possible renewal for another 3 months.  You will be one of the public faces of BeachCorps on social media.  Wage: $15 an hour with a performance-based raise to $20 after 1 month plus possible help with paid social media training.  Starting Date: TBD but SOON!

BeachCorps has a plan to be the Expedia (TM) of volunteer vacations allowing you to choose your hotel, your cause, and your activity.  BeachCorps is a new kind of volunteer vacation that partners with great hotels and  tourism experts to support established, worthy nonprofit causes while ensuring volunteer activities support sustainable development.  BeachCorps is the only volunteer vacation company of its kind in the world, since other volunteer vacations 1) don’t partner with great hotels, 2) don’t work with worthy, established and independent nonprofit causes, and 3) don’t ensure that a broad variety of rewarding activities are dedicated to the needs of the cause, not volunteers. 

We are looking for an intern in college because one of the projects you’ll be working on is a major public relations campaign giving away 5 free “Dream Volunteer Vacation” trips for college students to the Dominican Republic (airfare, beach hotel, ground transport and volunteer excursion plus donation to the nonprofit all included) via a YouTube video contest.  We will also hire either a PR firm or a Social Media Manager to lead the project and oversee the work of the Social Media Intern, so you will soon learn social media from a PRO!

The Successful Candidate will:
  • Be a college student applicant with a strong knowledge of the digital media landscape, including various social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, Pinterest).  If you don’t use all of these, we may still be able to work with you.
  • Have a creative mind to generate basic graphics (photos with text, using a Smartphone to create creative graphics, photos and videos).
  • Help link our website to our social media to drive sales and social media visibility.
  • Monitor and post on blogs and social networks.
  • Participate in online outreach and promotion with potential customers and partners.
  • Support online contests.
  • Suggest optimizations for our website and conduct keyword analysis.
  • Enjoy creating fun posts for Instagram and Facebook and possibly Snapchat that will include photos of the candidate.
  • Be comfortable speaking to a smartphone or computer camera as you will be one of the public faces of BeachCorps.
  • Know or learn about sustainable tourism because they will project important messages on sustainable development and sustainable tourism to establish BeachCorps as a “Thought Leader” in sustainable tourism.
  • Support creative, original ideas in sustainable tourism such as our "Recycling for Education" program that will provide school supplies to kids who promote recycling and trash pick up. 

Those looking to gain valuable online media experience with an up and coming organization that seeks to change the world “A Little Grain of Sand” at a time are encouraged to apply.  Working with us will open up a whole new world of combining great vacations and great causes. 

Salary and Benefits Package
Wage: $15 an hour with a performance-based raise to $20 after 1 month. 
Starting Date: TBD but SOON! 
Training: BeachCorps may also agree to a salary package that includes BeachCorps investing in your social media training if you have ideas for specific courses. 
Purchases for You: We will also invest in the Apps, software and hardware you need to succeed.
Possible Trip to the DR: We will work towards bringing you down to the Dominican Republic if you do a GREAT job!
