About DVN:

The mission of the Domestic Violence Network is to change the culture that leads to domestic violence through advocacy, education, and collaboration. Our work is focused on education with the idea that informing our community on issues related directly and indirectly to domestic and other types of violence will change the culture that leads to that violence. DVN does not provide direct service to victims/survivors. Our work is heavily based on prevention, so our direct service providers can focus on serving those impacted by this human issue.

We are currently seeking to fill an internship opportunity as a Social Media and Marketing Intern within our small, but dynamic organization.

About the internship:

The Social Media and Marketing Intern will work to create awareness campaigns that align with domestic violence prevention and our community wide plan, BEYOND EQUITY. This intern will learn the functions of marketing in a non-profit environment and will develop a marketing plan in collaboration with the Marketing Team that spans 1 year. This intern will also have the opportunity to shadow members of the team across programs.

We’re seeking applicants to create a diverse work culture that more closely match the diversity of the communities we serve and are hoping to include voices from all backgrounds to represent and promote DVN.

  • Manage social media and create content for various platforms
  • Attending and generating/gathering content from various trainings and events within DVNs programs
  • Collaborating with other team members to create marketing materials for DVN trainings and events

Note: The internship functions may be revised or updated as facility needs dictate.

These are deliverables we are certain will be part of this program. There may be other goals the intern has that they want to incorporate. Similarly, deliverables will likely present themselves organically as we move through programming, and those may also be added to the following:

  • Written Marketing Plan
  • 4 social media awareness campaigns – at least 2 campaigns for TikTok specifically
  • Posting to platforms regularly, with a focus on TikTok, X, and Threads
  • Program marketing materials when helpful

You want to challenge yourself and put your skills to use. You ask questions. You want to understand non-profit marketing and the role social media plays in that. You have the ability to effectively handle multiple projects at one time. You communicate clearly.
