Internship with The Lion Project

Company Overview:

The Lion Project was born out of a desire to see non-profits thrive, communities surround them with resources, and ultimately, all lives transformed. Non-profits – and their staff – are working in emotionally draining situations, often with long hours and little pay. They don’t ask for praise; they just want to help others. We set out to find a new way for non-profits to get the resources they need while also working to turn the hearts of bystanders into actors. What we and the community of supporters have created is unlike anything else. It increases the exposure and capability of non-profits while engaging companies to embrace a new way of doing business. We directly connect and transform three pillars of society – the business community, nonprofit sector, and the arts and entertainment industry. By leveraging the expertise and capital of businesses and the storytelling ability of creatives, the Lion Project creates a powerful voice for these silent nonprofit heroes. Our sister company, Lion Media Group, is a boutique agency specializing in brand strategy, video production, and digital marketing. In both, we work to give our clients excellence from beginning to end so their big ideas can grow and thrive.

  • Design collateral for non-profit service projects and the Lion Project Annual Gala
  • Assist staff in event planning and management at non-profit service projects and the Lion Project Annual Gala
  • Provide support to video production teams and be willing to learn elements of camera operation and editing software
