Position Overview:

*this position can be based anywhere in Nevada, not just Las Vegas*

PLAN’s digital communications fellow will work as part of the Communications and Digital department as we strive to uplift the work of our organization, the story of our leaders, and the change we want to see in our communities. As a Digital Communications Fellow, you will help implement a digital and social media strategy utilizing various digital tools and ad campaigns. The digital fellow will have the opportunity to learn how to draft social media toolkits and campaign materials. This program allows you to flex your creative muscles by creating engaging and educational graphics and videos to create a strong social media presence.

That’s why PLAN has been organizing since 1994 to take on the mining industry and fight for LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, and worker rights. Fellows will work alongside our diverse member groups, and statewide and national coalitions to tip the balance of power. 

People of color, women, gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, and transgender individuals are strongly encouraged to apply for all of our employment and volunteer opportunities. We prioritize maintaining a safe space where every employee and member can participate fully in our work.
