Make a Difference: Internships with ClassWish.org

ClassWish.org, an exciting new nonprofit, is recruiting outstanding undergraduates and graduatestudents as communications interns for the Spring or Summer. We seek smart, accomplished, creative, passionate students from top universities to collaborate on the boldest nonprofit initiative we know. Applicants must have exceptional communications skills and experience and a strong desire to make a difference.

Here is the problem we are tackling: K-12 schools in this country do not have enough resources to let children explore their potential and excel.  Books, computers, art supplies, musical instruments, science equipment, sports equipment—and even paper for computers and printersare all in desperately short supply. Teachers are spending their own money on supplies, and kids are peddling cookie dough and wrapping paper.  The situation is unfair, disruptive, grossly inefficient, and entirely inadequate. We’re going to change it.

ClassWish will use modern business practices and the latest marketing techniques to help 125,000 schools serving 56 million kids inform, inspire and engage supporters.  We just launchedthe first phase: teachers create Wish Lists of the resources they need.  People in the community can see exactly what is needed and how their tax-deductible contributions can help.

About Us: The people behind this campaign include such prominent education and business leaders as Adam Hirsch, COO, Mashable;  Laurie Coots, CMO, TBWA;  Scott Cutler, EVP, New York Stock Exchange;  Esther Dyson, investor and philanthropist;  Mark Linaugh, Chief Talent Officer, WPP;  Betsy Morgan, former CEO, Huffington Post;  Nancy Pelz-Paget, Director, Education and Society Program, Aspen Institute;  Delia Pompa, VP of Education, National Council of La Raza;  Sharon Robinson, CEO, American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education. In addition, Forbes Magazine liked our approach so much that they donated a full page of their March 15 issue to help raise awareness among businesses.

The work: Now, it’s time to engage a tremendous number of stakeholders, including: teachers,parents, alumni, businesses, churches, civic organizations, nonprofits, local governments, media partners and celebrities, as well as the press.
