What is the ISRAEL21c Digital Ambassadors Internship?
Digital Ambassadors are a select group of 36 college students in North America who feel passionate about Israel and use social media to spread fascinating stories about meaningful and positive things happening there. ISRAEL21c is 100% non-political. It is the world’s largest archive of print and visual content about 21st century Israel – including Israeli science and technology, arts and culture, humanitarian aid, daily life, and more – with original content being updated daily by ISRAEL21c journalists. This paid internship is open to any student who is committed to helping people see Israel through an apolitical, humanist lens. Digital Ambassadors play a key role in “spreading the good news!”
