Social Media & Marketing Internship Program

September 8th, 2016

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.


  • Attend weekly workshops – interns will be dropped from the program after 3 unexcused absences.
  • Attend at least one Volunteer Center service project in the fall and winter quarter to take photos and interview volunteers or community partners.
  • Attend at least one UCLA Advocacy event in the fall quarter in order to provide web or social media content.
  • Complete assignments and projects on time.
