IVolunteer International is seeking applications from aspiring creative graphic designers to join our start-up tech-nonprofit for a period of 5 months. The graphic designer will provide creative leadership to IVolunteer International’s new brand relaunch and work alongside the organization’s executives to create, edit, and establish IVolunteer International’s brand elements. The selected candidate will work directly with the Executive Director, but will also collaborate with other departments and staff. You can apply for this position as a volunteer or as an intern for college credit at accepting colleges and universities. IVolunteer International will happily produce proof of internship/volunteer contribution and work with flexible working conditions. Whichever category it is (volunteer or intern) this is an unpaid position.

  • Strong graphic design skills.
  • Personally own, or have publishing access to desktop publishing tools and/or graphic design software.
