The Program:

Street Ransom is expanding, and we are looking for dedicated and qualified college students to join our team! Two positions are open for the Summer of 2017:

Media and Design Intern (Unpaid)

Writing Intern (Unpaid)

These internships are designed to train and raise up sex trafficking abolitionists while using their passions, skills, and education to further the mission of Street Ransom. As an intern at Street Ransom, you won’t be fetching coffee or running errands. Our interns are part of making a difference and creating lasting change.

Why Intern with Us?

Interning with Street Ransom will provide you with a unique opportunity to expand your knowledge about the realities of sex trafficking and gain first hand experience in advocating for victims and raising awareness in Roanoke, VA and the surrounding areas.

As an intern, you will further develop your skills in your field of study and learn how to apply your education in the “real world,” preparing you for a profession as a postgraduate. Joining the Street Ransom team means that you will be a part of a rich community that is dedicated to your spiritual, professional, and personal growth. You will also gain an insider’s perspective on the nonprofit world–how nonprofit organizations develop, collaborate, and operate in today’s society.

The Commitment:

As a volunteer intern for the summer of 2017, you must be able to commit to:

  • A minimum of 12 hours of work per week at the Street Ransom office in Roanoke, VA during Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.
  • Three months of work: June-August 2017 (exact start and end dates are flexible).
  • Attend volunteer orientation
  • Complete training related to DMST (Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking) and Street Ransom.

The Process:

If you are interested in applying for one of these positions, please fill out the form below to let us know! A Street Ransom staff member will be in contact with you and will email you an application.

After filling out the application, please submit it to us via email along with your resume and, if you choose, any samples of your work that relates to the position you are applying for.

If your application is selected, you will proceed to a three-step process, including an interview with the Street Ransom Communication Coordinator, orientation, and training.
