About The Amish Heritage Foundation and Founder Torah Bontrager:
The Amish Heritage Foundation is a history-making non-profit committed to 1) empowering Amish women and children through education so they can choose their futures, and 2) raising awareness about the crises hidden in Amish society.
The Amish are an insular, underserved minority population of ~350,000 throughout ~30 states in rural America who speak English as a second language. Their religion requires members to attend Amish-only schools and to stop their education after 8 years; and they are prohibited from learning STEM, politics, current affairs, law, civics, and the fine arts. The average adult has a 5th grade level of English fluency and 3rd/4th grade math, the religion forbids health insurance and integration with mainstream society, and women are prohibited from exercising their rights as American citizens.
Founder Torah Bontrager, Columbia University GS ’07, was born and raised Amish and literally escaped in the middle of the night at age 15. She’s the author of the memoir Amish Girl in Manhattan, and her story and work have appeared on NPR, Tim Ferriss’ blog, MTV’s True Life, Forbes.com, Today.com, HuffPost, and Thrive Global, among others.
About the Internship Program:
The Amish Heritage Foundation (AHF) is looking for a college student or recent graduate who is interested in a social media marketing internship starting the Spring semester. You’ll work directly with the Founder & Executive Director to deliver on timely marketing objectives.
You’ll help with marketing AHF’s educational and cultural initiatives, including upcoming events (e.g., AHF’s annual conference).
In particular, you’ll be responsible for creating graphics and videos in Canva, help craft messaging, conduct research that speaks to our target market, and assist with longer-term strategic projects.
We hope that your time with us will turn out to be one of your favorite memories––perhaps even a major turning point––when you look back on your life years from now. You’ll be considered a vital part of our team and your ideas will be welcomed. You’ll also receive personal mentorship throughout the program to help you achieve your career goals, and invitations to industry events where you’ll have the opportunity to build your network of relationships.
Even though AHF is a nonprofit, we operate under a for-profit business model (Torah’s experience is in entrepreneurship). At the end of your time with us, you’ll have acquired marketable and lucrative transferable skills that you can use in your personal, professional, or academic journey.
