Opportunities at Crosscut Public Media
Crosscut is a seven-year-old digital news service, which covers the Seattle Metro Area and Greater Northwest. We are also a nonprofit, which means we are a news organization with a mission. That mission is to help make our region a model for sane, sustainable 21st Century living. We use the word “sustainable” in its broadest possible sense. Not just cleaning up Puget Sound or moving more people onto public transit, though both would be nice. We’re talking about how do we lure affluent kids back to public schools; infuse our civic life with the kind of smart, innovative technology and design we see happening all around us in Puget Sound; bring grace and gravity back to our civic discourse; embrace the region’s growing diversity; support the arts; end homelessness; reinvent journalism.The kind of grand transformation we imagine demands originality and chutzpah from bold leaders. Crosscut spotlights the people, policies, initiatives and ideas that are moving us towards that sane, sustainable ideal. We are neither partisan nor patient. We don’t presume to have the answers. We don’t care where transformative ideas come from. We just want to put the very best ones in play. We are the go-to place for news, ideas and thoughtful analysis – and a very restless agent of change. .
We are a start-up non-profit with a great team, flexible workplace, and significant contacts in the community. We’d like to add some interns to contribute to Crosscut’s growing success.Student Voice Internship
The Student Voice Intern will work directly with the Development Director to coordinate and market the Crosscut Student Voice, an op ed section of Crosscut.com dedicated to student opinions. This role scans Crosscut articles and upcoming topics to provide students with a relevant, timely question of the week. Responses are polled and top entries are publised on the site.
Applicants should have an interest in development and outreach of nonprofits, as well as gaining experience in a newsroom and fine-tuning editing skills.
During the duration of this internship, projects may include collaboration on:
- Coordinating Student Voice questions of the week, including email marketing of question and tracking of submissions
- Selection and editing of top submissions
- In-class presentations to Northwest colleges and Universities
- Coordinating with interested Professors to provide class credit where applicable
This internship will be structured to challenge and grow the skills needed to provide a foundation for your professional goals in non-profit news or leadership. Through mentorship, coaching, and hands on partnership in the above areas, you'll gain substantial experience in editing, marketing, and development, as well as exposure to non-profit culture and newsmakers/reporters across the Northwest.
