Yoga Source is currently seeking an enthusiastic Grassroots Marketing Intern. The ideal candidate is an energized self-starter who prefers to spend more time in the community talking with people than behind a computer screen. The student should have an aptitude for marketing and/or public relations. The grassroots marketing position requires a highly motivated individual with a passion for yoga and/or the health and wellness industry, as well as for community engagement.

Internship Duties
- Work directly with and report to the Marketing Director to implement Yoga Source’s grassroots marketing campaign.
- Implement successfully proven gorilla-marketing tactics of distributing promotional materials throughout the studio’s identified target markets within the Richmond area.
- Engage identified local community businesses by having face-to-face conversations and sharing promotional materials.

Program Benefits
- Earn internship class credit for school.

- Gain real-world marketing and public relations experience.

- Expand your networking opportunities by engaging our dedicated community partners and developing new business relationships on behalf of Yoga Source.
- Grow your résumé experience, and use the work for your portfolio.
