Description:

FRAMINGHAM, WALTHAM, Mass. The John Andrew Mazie Memorial Foundation (JAMMF), a nonprofit organization that operates the Mazie Mentoring Program for aspiring high school students, is seeking a part-time public relations intern to execute a media outreach campaign.

Interns will obtain hands-on experience working independently under the guidance of Founder and Executive Director Lowell Mazie and Teak Media + Communication, a boutique public relations agency that is working with JAMMF to generate local, regional and national attention.

The primary responsibility of the public relations intern will be to share the stories of the mentees who benefit from the Mazie Mentoring Program and the incredible dedication of the mentors who make it all possible. This is a volunteer position open to college juniors, seniors and graduate students for school credit only and will require approximately 10 to 12 hours of work per week from home.

Each year, the Mazie Mentoring Program pairs 60 Waltham and Framingham High School students who are at risk of not fulfilling their potential with adult volunteer mentors who can help them thrive. In the last 16 years, the unique goal-oriented, scholarship, award and mentoring program has helped more than 500 young people go on to achieve more fulfilled and successful lives. More than 90 percent of youth in the program graduate high school and more than 70 percent move on to college or other post-secondary training programs.

Qualifications:

Requirements include proficiency in writing, professional phone mannerisms, an interest in the media, a desire to learn, responsibility, and the ability to work well with moderate supervision. Basic computer skills and experience using Microsoft Word and Excel, and social media networks, are essential.
