About Caravan Studios
Join the team at Caravan Studios as we work to improve access to needed resources in communities around the world. Caravan Studios is a division of Techsoup, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in San Francisco, CA. We use technology so that communities can organize, access and connect to the resources they need.
Our design thinking methodology has community input throughout, ensuring the developed applications are necessary, and meet the needs of the community. We believe that communities should be deeply involved in developing tools to solve the problems they face. And they don’t have to be coders to do it.
We build apps for social good and we build them along with the communities that need them.
Our Internship program has been recognized by multiple Universities, as offering a unique and innovative opportunity to their students. We combine practical real world experience, formal and informal mentoring activities, as well as networking and community building skills. Although our internships are unpaid, we support students pursuing college credit and in some cases, scholarships through their University career centers and academic departments.
This internship will focus on assisting the Caravan team in managing two separate online communities, through social media: the online communities of app developers and the communities of nonprofits who work in Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence Shelters. These separate and unrelated communities are members of the Caravan Studios social networks. The intern will help to identify members and manage these communities through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
For this internship Caravan Studios is searching for a student who has a broad understanding of social media and building a community through social media networks including:
