Job Description

This unpaid internship supports Schoolit, an online, fundraising platform that was started by PTA parents to help support schools facing recent budget cuts.  Schoolit provides free, Fundraising Tools for Schools to all schools in the USA, and our model is simple: we give 100% of our proceeds from coupons, marketplaces and direct donations (aka: Tools) back to schools.  Schoolit seeks videographer interns to work with our team to create informational and “how to” videos.


Videographer interns will assume responsibility for creating three short videos intended to be shared on our website and social media sites:

[ 1 ]  What is Schoolit

[ 2 ]  How to Schoolit

[ 3 ]  How to Fundraise

Schoolit staff will provide online tours and functionality tutorials of the Schoolit platform as well as assist in editing scripts that interns create.  Should the videos require less time than expected, interns may be invited to help create several other Schoolit videos, both in-house and out-of-house.  Interns will be responsible for writing, storyboarding, directing, filming, and editing entire video projects, and must also own and operate video equipment and editing software. 

Skills/Experience Needed

– Tailoring videos for the web

– Scriptwriting and Storyboarding

– Directing and Filming

– Editing (video/audio)

– Re-shooting when needed

The Schoolit videographer internship offers the opportunity to gain real world experience working on and leading projects from concept to completion.  Videographer interns will be creative, go-getting, time managing, team players who are excited to build and complete projects on behalf of supporting schools.  Our internship program is available to current students and graduates from all majors.  This is an unpaid summer internship, but meals and travel will be reimbursed.

How to Apply

Please email a cover letter and resume to [email protected].  In your letter please state why you are interested in interning with Schoolit, your availability (how many hours a week you are available/which days or hours), relevant skills and experience you have, and the timeframe during which you will be available for the internship.  Also, feel free to attach or direct us to projects you have been a part of or have completed in the past.  We will contact you if we wish to schedule an interview.
