In collaboration with the UCLA Volunteer Center and UCLA Advocacy, the Social Media and Marketing Internship Program (SMMIP) will provide 15 motivated students the resources to serve UCLA and the Greater Los Angeles community through cause-based marketing and social media. The program builds and enhances pathways for UCLA students interested in philanthropy to prepare for marketing careers in the nonprofit sector.
During the fall quarter, the program will feature classroom style workshops (1.5 hour weekly) to develop and strengthen social media and marketing skills. In the winter quarter, interns will utilize their newly-developed skills to support a Volunteer Center or Advocacy initiative. Additional projects include leading a service project or advocacy effort or developing a cause-based social media campaign. At the end of the internship, students will have a portfolio to showcase their work with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe InDesign.
