Internship involving marketing and writing about early childhood movement and play space

Movement in a Box is a quarterly subscription box that combines fundamental movement skills with learning activities for children aged 3-6 years. The company hopes to inspire lifelong movers and educate parents and caregivers about the value of moving-based learning.

This is Midd-friendly because a current student knows the founder and sent this along to share!

This summer, they are looking for a part-time intern to help them build this start-up from the ground up through content creation, social media marketing, and marketing analytics. This is a great opportunity to work closely with founders in a high-energy start-up environment, help to build up a brand and its mission, and take a deep dive into early childhood movement, learning, and play.
Specifically, they want someone who is excited to:

  • Devise and create content that aligns with the Movement in a Box mission and vision
  • Keep up to date about current brands, trends, blogs and potential like-minded partners to find opportunities where Movement in a Box can contribute it’s voice to the larger conversation around Physical Literacy and early childhood development.

  • Research and writing content, including social media, blog posts, website content, email content and press releases
  • Social media marketing and content creation. Experience with Canva or Adobe (Photoshop, Rush, Illustrator) is a plus.

Alum in Philly seeking campaign interns

Would you like to work on the campaign of one of Philadelphia’s most dynamic elected Democratic officeholders?

Rebecca Rhynhart shook the Philadelphia political establishment in 2017 when she unseated the Democratic incumbent in a primary to become Philadelphia’s first female City Controller. This past year Rebecca was ranked #3 of Philadelphia Magazines list of the 76 Most Influential Philadelphians.

Last year Rebecca boldly presented an alternative to the Mayor’s budget that provides a more effective way to deal with our current health and financial crisis. Most recently, Rebecca released a report on what went wrong during the city’s response to civil unrest last summer and outlined recommendations to ensure it never happens again. Rebecca has an MPA from Columbia University and a BA from Middlebury College.
