Meaningful Movies High School Internship Program

by November 16, 2022 0

Are you a student in high school seeking to find meaningful volunteer work? The Meaningful Movies Project supports an active High School Internship Program. This is an educational internship which will provide opportunities to support the Meaningful Movies Project hub organization as well as support for local, volunteer-run Meaningful Movies groups that are organizing Meaningful Movies events. Duties may include choosing films for events; finding speakers; coordinating with our MMP tech team; posting to instagram, facebook and twitter and other social media advertising; writing newspaper articles or blog articles; providing reminders to volunteers to fill out appropriate forms; supporting individual venues by reaching out to targeted groups and organizations to inform them of the upcoming movies; supporting the hub organization by reaching out to targeted groups and organizations to inform them about the work of the organization; assisting volunteers with technology and online events. As a Meaningful Movies high school intern, you will be provided with an excellent educational opportunity and will gain valuable experience. You will also become a part of a larger community of people organizing, educating and advocating for a more just and peaceful world.

Meaningful Movies High School Interns should be able to commit to a 6 month volunteer position for a minimum of 2 hours per week. Start and end dates are flexible and will be jointly determined by the applicant and Meaningful Movies staff. If you are interested in joining the MMP High School Intern team, contact our MMP Manager, Melinda at meaningfulmovies.org.

In recognition of the incredible work that our High School Interns are doing, they were awarded the 2022 MMP Volunteer(s) of the Year Award. Winners include Amanda Fellinge, Deni Malabanan, Swetha Upadastra, Abby Lin The young high school interns who lead this group come from many different places – Washington State, California and as far away as the Phillippines. They volunteer, not just because they are interested in gaining valuable work experience, but also because they deeply care about social justice and the challenges that our world is facing. They are proving themselves to be very capable community organizers. They produce their own online events, choose their own films to screen and build relationships with speakers, activists and other Meaningful Movies volunteers. The High School group volunteers have also shown an impressive eagerness to learn and willingness to volunteer for new projects. They are self starters, eager to take the initiative and learn about new topics. At the Meaningful Movies Project, we know that we ALL have a responsibility to try and make the world better. Adults can’t simply pass the torch to young people and expect them to save a world. So we are grateful that we are building a community of volunteers of all ages who are working together to educate, advocate, build community and work for peace and justice.
