About Global Citizen

Our mission is to build a movement of 100MM Global Citizens whose actions will help achieve our vision of a world without extreme poverty by 2030.

Global Citizen is a movement of engaged citizens who are using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030. On our platform, Global Citizens learn about the systemic causes of extreme poverty, take action on those issues, and earn rewards for their actions as part of a global community committed to lasting change.

One of the key ways we can grow that movement is through the editorial content on GlobalCitizen.org and its partner channels: stories, videos, and social media that bring the important human rights issues of the world to readers where they are. This is journalism with a purpose; content-creation to help make the world a better place for all.

So far, more than 13 million actions have been taken by Global Citizens, leading to $35 billion commitments being made by world leaders, which are set to affect 1.3 billion lives by 2030

We're currently looking for a passionate, focused and organized intern to work with Global Citizens Editorial Team for the Spring 2019 Semester.
