Communications Intern

The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) seeks a remote, full- or part-time communications intern each term (fall, winter, spring, and summer). This opportunity is open to undergraduate or graduate students majoring in communications, marketing, journalism, public relations, or a related field—or individuals with equivalent experience—seeking to develop their communication skills in a nonprofit setting.

The communications intern will report to AWI’s digital engagement manager and public relations manager and assist with the development, implementation, and analysis of creative concepts and communication strategies. Tasks may include creating social media posts and videos, media monitoring, media database updating, etc. The ideal candidate is a strong writer and communicator who is organized and has a genuine interest in animal welfare. Although not required, SEO familiarity and a demonstrated interest in social media management, or skill in video production is preferred.

Internships are generally unpaid; however, students accepted for a full-time summer position are encouraged to apply for AWI’s Paid Summer Internship Program. Interns may also arrange to receive course credit. Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling basis for fall 2022. Interested applicants should send a résumé and cover letter to Kim Meneo at kim@awionline.org. In your letter, please specify the term for which you are applying.
