US:

TEDxMileHigh is a community of engaged, active, and driven individuals committed to ideas worth spreading in Colorado. TEDxMileHigh promotes inspired citizenship in our communities with the ultimate goal of creating a better, more connected Colorado.

This doesn’t just mean our events. Our goal is to be a source, a hub, of intellectual conversation in the Mile High region. We want to sell out events, but we also want a deep, integrated presence online through our blog, social media, website, talks, and videos.

Since 2011, we’ve produced 22 events for a collective audience of more than 50K thinkers and doers. Our talks online have been viewed 60 million times through online channels.

While our mission is big, we keep things light. We have a happy, productive workplace, and we’re constantly trying to improve. You’ll find us hustling on the job, having deep related and unrelated conversations seeking life’s truths, and enjoying a laugh with a Colorado craft brew.

This is an unpaid, volunteer position, offering college credit, that will be 10-15 hours per week. This position requires a minimum 6-month commitment, with preference given to candidates that can commit to a longer period of time. As a small nonprofit, the majority of our team is made up of volunteers, and we rely on volunteers to make our events and programming possible. As an intern, you will be part of an extraordinary team of committed individuals!
