We are looking for a razor sharp, organized self-starter who can rapidly synthesize, summarize, and create popular education materials that quickly communicate case studies of political and economic projects that challenge the political economy of racial capitalism. The intern will be diving into the creation of learning materials and case studies for high school civics and economics classes and popular education and community-based settings. This work supports community based organizations, cooperatives, and schools to develop and sharpen cooperative values and analysis of political economy. These efforts aim to advance community led planning for economic democracy in the Bronx.
This position is a combination of reading, writing, communication, and community organizing/community educator. It is ideal for someone who is or seeks to be a part of supporting movements for social transformation through education and learning. The intern will have a regularly established check-in time weekly or twice weekly with their supervisor, but will otherwise have broad latitude to accomplish their work independently and remotely.
Skills, qualifications and other requirements:
• Exceptional writing and research skills
• Background knowledge of urban processes, social movements, new economy/solidarity economy and community organizing a strong plus
• Experience with memo writing and rapid creation of written materials.
• Some background or working knowledge of Canva or other basic visual design software is helpful.
