The Rebel's summer internship!

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Description:

The Rebel is the home of fearless conservative news, opinion, and activism that you won't find anywhere else!

TheRebel.media is different because our supporters participate in shaping everything we do, through a mix of online engagement, commenting, advocacy, and events. We don’t just report the news — we participate in it.

That’s what makes working at The Rebel unique. The Rebel is a small operation with a large footprint – but no other media companies have yet to recreate our high-engagement model.

Our interns have gone on to work for politicians and high-ranking businesses across the globe. Some interns have turned their experiences into full-time jobs with The Rebel too. 

The Rebel summer internship provides participants with a unique ability to develop their skills in producing alternative media, fundraising, writing, and social media marketing. You’ll have a "backstage pass" to see how our video reports are made, and how The Rebel crowdfunds our citizen journalism. 

Interns will also be able to pitch ideas and write scripts for their own videos, if they would like to be in front of the camera. 

Interns will be expected to work approximately 35 - 40 hours/week. Internship start and end dates are flexible and can accommodate individual school schedules. 

Compensation will be provided at a modest rate, and interns are expected to work out of our Toronto head office. Housing is not provided.
