Work for BikeVentura

We're looking for an Engagement Intern

We’re looking for an enthusiastic engagement  intern to help us tell people about all the great things we do, and all the opportunities they have to get involved and contribute.

As an engagement intern, you will collaborate with our executive director to manage key components of community engagement like our blog, social media posts, and printed materials. These channels are powerful ways to foster engagement with our organization, whether through donations, memberships, or volunteering. You will work with the executive director to make sure our outreach is properly tuned to encourage as much engagement as possible.

While learning some of the best practices for this kind of outreach, you will get a chance to work with a small group of passionate people that are all in roles where their strengths shine. You’ll mostly be working with the executive director, giving you a complete view of a small but successful non-profit in Ventura. Ultimately, you will gain broad experience in outreach and marketing,  and will be better prepared to enter a non-profit sector that increasingly relies on digital outreach tools to get people involved.
