About Echoing Green

For 30 years, Echoing Green has unleashed next-generation talent to solve the world’s biggest problems. These leaders, who spend their lives working with purpose, define their generations; they make society better. Echoing Green continues to build a global community of emerging leaders–over 700 and growing–who launched Teach For America, City Year, One Acre Fund, SKS Microfinance, and more.

Echoing Green's impact investing program has been formed in response to an increase in Fellowship applications with for-profit business models to solve the world's most pressing social and environmental challenges. After building our internal capacity to get Fellows impact investment-ready, we are expanding our outreach to impact investors and advisors to provide links to appropriate post-seed follow-on funding and support. This Intern will have the opportunity to meaningfully contribute to this new and exciting initiative.

Position Description

Note: This is not an investing position. We also do not anticipate this internship turning into a full-time position. Candidates must be located or willing to relocate to Seattle for this internship. This internship is scheduled to start late June or early July and ideally continue for 5-6 months, through the end of 2017.


Preferred Qualifications

The ideal candidate will have outstanding professional communications and research skills. The candidate will need to be able to demonstrate that they can work independently, communicate effectively via written and oral communications, and manage up, especially as the Director travels frequently for work.

They will have detail-oriented analytical skills, a knack to synthesize data, with the ability to spot trends in data and communicate them clearly.

They will ideally have experience supporting event programming and conferences, including logistics, scheduling, and content brainstorming.
