PRIMARY CAUSE AREA(S) OF PROJECT: Community Development, Education
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
29Eleven Consulting is a social media consultancy committed to strategy development, management, content development and education. 29Eleven works closely with its clients to ensure their return on investment in all online and offline community engagement.
1) What clear, meaningful learning opportunities will be provided for the intern(s) to gain knowledge and perspectives about their own social identities as well as those from diverse populations?
Clear, meaningful learning opportunities provided for the intern(s) include working directly with clients to convey their brand message for the benefit of their community of parents, educators, students, teachers and other stakeholders.

For example, one of 29Eleven Consulting’s clients includes the Bronzeville Community Action Council (BCAC). In conjunction with other Bronzeville organizations and schools, BCAC addresses many issues surrounding the growth and development of Bronzeville’s economic, educational and workforce status. Involvement with this group will expose interns to the underlying issues that impact single parent/family households.

The interns will be responsible for communicating the results of meetings, events and gatherings that express to BCAC’s social media following: opportunities for advocacy, advancement and those of achievement.

In addition, this client requires engagement with area CPS and UChicago Charter Schools which opens the door for opportunities to discuss safe social media practices with youth ages 3 to 18, parents and teachers. Participants learn how to communicate their perspective of community happenings without threatening their education or job opportunities and other resources.

Interns will learn to effectively engage community members and draw them together for the sake of community development.
2) How will your project help interns learn the systemic and structural needs of the marginalized communities and populations that your organization targets?
The project will help interns learn the systemic and structural needs of the marginalized communities and populations through the coordination of social media strategies, content development and posts. Their direct involvement with principals, teachers, students, parents, community leaders and other stakeholders affords them a very specific lens. They then serve as community organizers who use social media platforms as a tool for discovery, unification, and urban planning. In the process, interns learn to engage community stakeholders, media outlets and public service professionals.

3) What skills/tools will the intern(s) gain that will help them learn and practice working with diverse communities to change systemic and structural inequities? This can include civic/political exposure and engagement.
Interns will learn to listen to understand and process their findings for peaceable results. Understandably, there tend to be a great deal of disagreement on any level. However, the role 29Eleven Consulting plays helps to end conflict and bridge gaps that allow for stakeholders to effectively work together. Interns will gain keen decision making and problem solving skills. We are tasked with making or influencing decisions that impact the trajectory of peoples’ lives, education and involvement. Consequently, all of our input must be properly calculated so as not to leave a community in total disarray but to mend relationships and encourage collaboration where needed most.

4) What consistent duties and/or tasks are associated with the project?
Consistent duties include preparing posts for social media, relaying information gathered information, attending events and posting live on Facebook and facilitating social media training sessions.
5) Finally, please describe how the results of their project(s) will help the intern(s) understand the impact of their work within the community/population.
The interns will understand the impact of their work through the collection and review of social media analytics, testimonials, program evaluations and letters of recommendation (where applicable).
