Free The Children

We Schools in Action Program Coordinator (Now We Act) Intern

I am a product of their programming. I successfully switched roles in August 2010, overseeing their program, now known as We Act.

Intending to productively contribute to my goals during an unplanned gap year, I initiated Free The Children’s first full-time, unpaid, multi-month internship. Upon my exit, Free The Children created a formal full-time paid internship program, and changed my newly created position from an internship position to two paid full-time coordinator positions.

The We Schools in Action Program is ignited by an annual event, We Day, and calls for local and global actions to be taken throughout the school year.

The 40,000 participants in the 2010-2011 We Schools in Action Program raised $4.5 million dollars and volunteered 1 million hours.

Day to Day tasks included:
-contacted educators online, in person and by phone
-created, organized, and managed effective resources for educators
-facilitated leadership activities with students to find their full potential
-assessed the program’s process daily through an organization database.
-updated various departments at weekly meetings with the need-to-know information of the growing program.

Projects included:
-Created Volunteer Team Training Plan and oversaw its execution for 80 We Day Volunteers
-Organized a 5,000lb We Day Food Drive
-Program Website Restructure
-Program Report Form Creation, Data Analysis and Results
-Creation of a program specific server and amalgamated foundational program documents
-2011-2012 We Schools in Action Program Guide
-This guide would influence the 70,000 participants that were registered in the Spring of 2011 for the 2011-2012 We Schools in Action Program. These participants would go on to raise $5.4 million and volunteer 1.6 million hours that school year.

Co-creator of 2010 Annual Report

After my decision to interview all ten school principals on-site and visiting with student representatives, I consolidated that information and created content, evaluated the strongest data to feature, selected which graphics to use, and formatted the twenty page document.
