ClassWish.org Description

K-12 schools in this country do not have enough resources to let children explore their potential and excel. Books, computers, art supplies, musical instruments, science equipment, sports equipment—and even paper for computers and printers—are all in desperately short supply. Teachers are spending their own money on supplies, and kids are peddling cookie dough and wrapping paper. The situation is unfair, disruptive, grossly inefficient, and entirely inadequate. We’re going to change it.

ClassWish.org, an exciting new nonprofit, will use modern business practices and the latest marketing techniques to help 125,000 schools serving 56 million kids inform, inspire and engage supporters. We just launched the first phase: teachers create Wish Lists of the resources they need. People in the community can see exactly what is needed and how their tax-deductible contributions can help.

We are recruiting an outstanding graduate student or recent graduate as summer web development intern to collaborate on the boldest nonprofit initiative we know. Applicants must have exceptional digital graphic skills. Most of the team will be in Manhattan, but we will also consider a virtual intern in another location.
