We are working towards this vision by finding local social entrepreneurs and empowering them to develop and scale innovative solutions that improve the lives of children and youth.

What we can offer

This is the chance to develop your creative skills by making communication that makes a real difference. You will join a highly talented global team with a flat hierarchy which is demanding but will teach you more than anywhere else and develop your workplace skills.

During your internship

Your tasks might include writing newsletters, creating videos, social media content, and contributing to our campaigns and digital platforms. You will also be put in charge of one red thread project of your own depending on your interests, for example setting up a structure for how we work with social media insight, running a podcast, creating a mini-campaign, or renewing our webpage. The day usually finishes at 5 pm but work hours are flexible. Each week, you will have a check-in with your supervisor in order to discuss your next steps.

Who you are

A student: We expect you to be a student either at the Bachelor’s or Master’s level and connected to a university where the internship is part of your education plan. The position is unpaid and therefore it is important to us that you are receiving funds from a third party (SU/CSN/Erasmus Stipendium or another source of student support).

Passionate: Have a strong passion when it comes to the end goal of improving the world for children and youth, and are interested in working in a remote and international, pragmatic, business-savvy and results-driven team.

Brave: As a person, you are brave, thorough, and have strong interpersonal and communication skills. You don’t hesitate to take initiative, are proactive, and enjoy having varied tasks and projects. You don't hesitate to ask questions, learn, be curious and would rather fail than do nothing.

Smart: You care about the quality of your work and you have an entrepreneurial, problem-solving, go-getter mindset. You are also confident in utilizing standard IT tools for day-to-day tasks and communication - especially Google Suite.

Competencies and skills we are looking for: Good proficiency in English is required, as well as strong written communication skills. Proficiency in Swedish is a plus.


Reach for Change recognizes that creating the change we want to see around us starts with ourselves, in our own organization. That is why it is important for us to strive to represent the change we want to see in the world. As a team, we strive to be diverse along many dimensions such as ethnicity, gender, language, age, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, beliefs, socio-economic status, physical and mental ability, thinking styles, experience, and education. We believe that the wide array of perspectives results from such diversity and promotes innovation and success. We, therefore, invite every candidate to bring their unique individual strengths.
