Development at Young Storytellers involves both the cultivation of people to support our programs and the raising of funds to ensure their continuity, and the Development and Database Intern will get a close-up look at how to use data to tell an organizational story. This position will engage a balance of focused tasks like database uploads and inputting weekly student, donor, and volunteer information as well as more creative work to execute campaigns for our monthly giving program, Story Club. Anchoring this experience will be a project supporting the build-out of the custom YS development database.
Comfort with database work or programs is helpful, but by no means a requirement for the position.
Young Storytellers sparks creative self-discovery through storytelling. Our programs highlight young people as the center of their own narratives, emphasize that their stories matter, and celebrate their unique voices as the ones telling them. Through a creative storytelling program that engages youth at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, our organization offers a Common Core-aligned, scaling curriculum to address targeted needs in public education.Young Storytellers works towards a future where young people experience the impact that their thoughts, feelings, and words can have on the world in which they live.
