Here's your chance to join the legion of LaunchGood fellows.
Creative. Entrepreneurial. Empowered. LaunchGood is committed to highlighting the incredible values of the global Muslim community with every campaign.
LaunchGood is an online community to support Muslims launching good all over the world by helping them raise funds for their campaigns. We are a full-service model – meaning we work with each campaign individually, beginning to end – and also have strong community engagements, where we focus on building community campaigns around student groups, causes, etc.
SO WHAT DO FELLOWS LEARN?
-Have an opportunity to do real meaningful work where you can see your impact directly supporting others-Learn what it truly takes to make a crowdfunding campaign successful and how to coach others -Go through a 12-week online course prepared by LaunchGood's founders to equip you with the skills & mindset to launch your own endeavors -Learn about new models and ways of working-Access to the Green Garage Incubator in Detroit and it's awesome community -A chance to work with and meet awesome Muslim creatives, LaunchGooders, and amazing people doing cool work across the globe
Fellows will no doubt learn about the power of crowdfunding, social entrepreneurship, and leadership.Ideally they leave the fellowship more empowered as they learn practical skills and principles to share in their communities. This is an investment LaunchGood's happy to make in them, and by extension their respective communities.
General (i.e. campaign coaching/general support) + Outreach Design (i.e. graphic design/front end development) + Outreach
Note* both positions will require fellows to do extensive outreach.*
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Being a startup, these fellowship positions are unpaid. After the 3 month period if fellows impress our team and continue with us we offer paid positions. We are growing quickly and looking for talented individuals we can turn full time and secure funding for if they show the talent. We are looking for people who love building something from nothing, who thrive off facing a challenge without a defined solution and solving it, and who are self-motivated and exceed expectations. The startup environment is one where the success and failure of the company is directly related to the first few founding members and the effort they put forth – if that sounds exhilarating to you, you are an entrepreneur! In all positions we are looking for motivated, self-starter individuals that can work in a team as well as manage tasks independently.
We are accepting applicants from all over the world, with a special preference for fellows from the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Singapore, and Malaysia.
