New York, United States expand job description ↓


NationSwell is a leading social impact media company dedicated to powering the solutions and innovations that will move our country forward. NationSwell advances that mission through a digital media platform that tells powerful, authentic human stories of problem solvers, through the NationSwell Council — a special membership community of more than 600 service-minded leaders who share a passion for service, for taking action around solutions and for collaborating and supporting each other — and through its Impact Studio where it works with mission-aligned companies like Starbucks, Seventh Generation, Comcast, Toyota and others to support and amplify their social impact efforts through storytelling, digital distribution and creative impact campaigns. Last year, NationSwell reached more than 400 million people with its content.

We’re passionate about telling the stories of creative solutions that bridge the opportunity divide, advance national service, protect the environment, and make government work.
