Join Our Team
Thank you for your interest in the Reproductive Health Access Project! We are currently looking for a Graphic Design Intern.
Graphic Design Intern
The Reproductive Health Access Project (RHAP) is a small, but growing national nonprofit organization based in New York City. We are looking for a highly motivated, organized, and creative individual to join our staff. RHAP expects to continue its growth in the coming years, and the Graphic Design Intern will work with the entire RHAP team on various print and digital marketing and educational materials, as well as brainstorming new campaigns and promotions. This is a unique opportunity to make a significant contribution to an exciting, mission-driven organization. The Graphic Design Intern is a part-time intern position reporting to the Executive Director and Operations Associate.
About the Reproductive Health Access Project:
The Reproductive Health Access Project mobilizes, trains, and supports clinicians to make reproductive health care accessible to everyone. We focus on three key areas: abortion, contraception, and miscarriage care.
Our training programs give clinicians the skills they need to provide high-quality reproductive health care and model a non-judgmental, patient-centered approach to providing health care. Our leadership development and advocacy programs help create a new generation of reproductive health leaders who are effective advocates in their local communities. Our technical assistance and mentoring programs ensure that the reproductive health skills we teach are successfully integrated into clinical settings. Through our national organizing and mobilizing we are building a movement of clinical reproductive freedom champions.
We believe that this combination of training, advocacy, and support will change the culture of primary care in our country and expand access to needed reproductive health care.
Supporting the work of a small but busy organization, the Graphic Design Intern will play a key role in ensuring that the Reproductive Health Access Project is able to communicate complex ideas and information clearly and efficiently while creating a strong and innovative brand experience that builds upon our existing materials and style. This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, detail-oriented, creative self-starter to support a variety of local and national initiatives. This is a part-time (hours flexible) position. Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:
- You’ll build elegant presentations for our donors, supporters, events, and campaigns.
- You’ll translate verbal ideas into well-executed print pieces (books, posters, etc).
- You’ll create unique and thoughtful design solutions for the external and internal needs of the organization.
- You’ll support and inspire our team through collaborative brainstorming sessions.
- You’ll help design and disseminate visual content to support our program, development, and communications teams.
- You’ll prepare images for social media posts (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram), newsletter, etc
- You’ll create infographics for our research and development teams.
- You’re an amazing multitasker.
- You organize your work so you can handle a wide range of projects without overlooking anything.
- You communicate well.
- You have strong verbal and visual presentation skills.
- You embrace constructive criticism as part of the design process.
- You know how to use Adobe’s Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign)
- You have team ethos.
- You thrive in a creative, inventive, fast-paced start-up environment with people who are passionate about their work and mission.
- You work as well with your hands as you do with your head. You can cut, paste, bind, score, fold, trim and tape.
- You’re precise and articulate, whether you’re creating mock-ups to show around the office or final products to give donors, supporters, and clinicians.
- You are committed to reproductive justice.
Although we’ll need you for about 10-15 hours a week, the schedule is flexible and you can work remotely. This internship is unpaid, but we’re happy to work with your institution to offer you class credit.
