InDesign Internship with local nonprofit: No Barriers Youth

Posted on December 10th, 2015

No Barriers Youth is looking for a JTC student (or alum) familiar with InDesign to do part-time contract work transferring content from word documents into existing InDesign templates. The content has already been written and edited and includes curriculum lessons and destination guidebooks used to prepare students for participation in expeditions all over the world. This position can be done remotely or in our Old Town office. Hours are flexible. Time commitment and term of internship will be on a project-to-project basis. Ideally, this person will have his/her own access to InDesign. This person will be paid an hourly stipend commensurate with experience. Work could start immediately (over winter break). This is a great resume/ portfolio-building opportunity and chance to gain experience with a progressive, local nonprofit.

Ideal candidates will have the following skills/characteristics/experience:
• Acute attention to detail and experience copy editing
• Demonstrated proficiency in Adobe InDesign (strong beginner/ intermediate level required)
• Awareness of effective print page design principles
• Exceptional written and oral communication
• Demonstrated ability to meet deadlines and deliver a quality, professional, print-ready product
• Experience with curriculum design a plus, not required
• A personal passion for experiential education and “transformative travel” a plus, not required

We also have traditional semester-long internship openings for the spring semester and summer term. These positions are unpaid, but do include participation in a No Barriers event. The work is not specific to InDesign, but could be adapted to meet the internship goals of JTC students. To request a full internship description or express interest, please email Shannon@NoBarriersUSA.org.
