ISRAEL21c is a nonprofit organization with an on-the-ground team of experienced journalists and content creators who bring to light stories rarely covered in mainstream media.
The Digital Ambassador Internship Program cultivates the next generation of digital communication experts. In this exclusive program, ISRAEL21c works with college-aged students in North America who are passionate about Israel’s positive image across digital media. The Digital Ambassadors work in teams to develop content that actively develops new audiences for ISRAEL21c. Digital Ambassadors develop their storytelling skills by sharing positive news about Israel with diverse communities across the globe, and are given the opportunity to do something positive for Israel that is apolitical.
2022-2023 ISRAEL21c Digital Ambassadors will work together in small teams to produce and execute innovative multimedia campaigns.
Digital Ambassador Roles
There are five teams of four to six participants in the program. Each team develops and distributes digital content inspired by ISRAEL21c’s articles on topics ranging from Sustainability and Humanitarian Aid, to Business, Entrepreneurship and Travel. The teams are empowered to be creative, develop a voice that speaks to their peers, and think outside of the box. We want you to push the limits.
Each team has a team leader, typically past program participants, who serve as the liaison to ISRAEL21c staff and are responsible for managing the team’s production cycle. The other team members are content creators who research, shoot, design, edit, and write for the ISRAEL21c social media channels and in-article responses. The team will collaborate on creating buzz and distributing to relevant target audiences among college aged students, both on campus and in online networks.
