Quill.org Education Internship for Hamilton Students

Quill.org is a free online tool that helps low-income students become great writers. We are a non-profit, open source organization, and there are currently more than 500,000 students using Quill. With your help, we can teach millions of students.

Quill.org is located in New York City, and we hosted two Hamilton students during their 2016 NYC semester, Yuwen Michelson and Sharon Liu. As a small startup, our interns play a critical role in a number of different areas of Quill, including research, outreach, curriculum development, and marketing. Our office is in the financial district, and it is a short walk from the Hamilton campus. Yuwen wrote about her experience working with Quill for Hamilton, and you can find the post here: https://www.hamilton.edu/news/story/giving-students-a-voice-in-the-world.

 

Quill’s Education interns work with teachers and students to develop new activities and materials. Through meetings with educators at schools and libraries throughout New York City, the intern will learn how students are using Quill and generate ideas for how it can be improved.

Finally, you will help us reach new teachers through online marketing.
