PHOTOGRAPHY AND MEDIA ASSISTANT (Intern)
Yspaniola is a Dominican-American education nonprofit building a model of high quality education programs in Batey Libertad from pre-kindergarten through university. After creating successful programs in Batey Libertad, we will replicate our model in other bateys and marginalized communities in the Dominican Republic. Yspaniola’s vision is to provide graduates of our programs the tools they need to successfully advocate for themselves and their communities. Yspaniola also operates Experiential Learning trips for high school and university students from countries outside of the DR to raise awareness about international development and social justice issues on the island.
Yspaniola is seeking a Photography and Media Assistant to create outstanding digital content for Yspaniola’s website, social media and communications channels. The ideal candidate will be an experienced photographer with top-notch media skills for working across a variety of social platforms, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Your work will support Yspaniola’s day-to-day social media presence, as well as providing both photography and written content for fundraising and communications campaigns as required. We ask for a minimum three-month commitment.
Yspaniola interns have the opportunity to meaningfully contribute to our work, and may also choose to develop a media project based on their own interest. This internship offers an incredible opportunity to work in the small, close-knit community of Batey Libertad, as part of a passionate, busy team of local and international staff. The Photography and Media Assistant will report to the Director of Development. Interns are required to pay a fee to cover housing, food and transportation while in the country, but Yspaniola can assist in fundraising or applying for school-sponsored funding.
