If your focus is communications or marketing, you can work within a range of organizations that are looking for ways to spread their messaging through various media channels.
Social development organizations often need help providing information to their beneficiaries, gaining support for their causes, and promoting their successes to a wider audience.
You may be interested in working with digital material such as websites and interactive platforms, crafting content for social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram, creating videos, writing blogs, and producing newsletters, as well as enhancing the organization’s website.
You may help produce print materials from posters and flyers to instructional workbooks. Use your writing skills to help share important public service messages.
