You’re a Visionary. You’re excited to change the world and help people see the world through the
lens of kindness. You know the story one picture can tell and you are always look-
ing for new, innovative and fun ways to capture the essence of the organization
through photographs.
You’re a stickler for details. You’re the quintessential organizer and have an eye for details. You understand the
importance of branding across all mediums of communication; from a newsletter
to a simple Facebook post – you help maintain the consistent look and feel of the
brand at all times.
You have the basics down pat. You know how to best use Microsoft Word, Excel and online tools to multitask
and stay on top of several projects simultaneously.
You’re a jack of all trades. You know which tools are best to get the job done and more importantly you
know how to use them. From Photoshop, Illustrator and other photography tools
to make the most of each image.
You’re self-motivated and a go getter. You’re the best juggler out there. You can handle a wide-variety of tasks without
constant supervision. You’re confident and capable of representing Life Vest Inside
in your field. And you’re the kind of person who is psyched for the chance to take
ownership of projects.
You’re firm yet flexible. You bring your ideas and creative energies to the table while also following our
staff’s critique and guiding words.
You’ve got the whole package. You have previous experience with photography under your belt and some cool
camera equipment to bring along.


Internship takes place over SUMMER 2014. Interns should be able to commit to a
minimum of 15 hours per week. Please note: spaces are limited. Only hands-on,
committed candidates will be considered. We like people who know how to
hustle (and if you know how to do the hustle, that’s even better).



This is an unpaid internship but some of our finest staff members started off as in-
terns. At Life Vest Inside there is plenty of room to advance. While you are in-
vesting your time with us, we are most certainly investing in your growth. The intern-
ship will also provide you with an exceptional opportunity to gain experience
working with a fast growing non-profit. Need credits? We are more than happy to
work with your institution and give you academic credit for your experience.
