Calling all aspiring changemakers, come join Singapore's first co-operative of active citizen changemakers creating meaningful solutions for social issues in Singapore!

Who We Are
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has - Margaret Mead

A Good Space (AGS) is a group of people who want to do more for the social issues and communities we care about. From climate change to migrant workers, mental health to low-income communities, we represent 19 different issues and come from all walks of life, united in our dream for a more caring and inclusive Singapore.

We call these people ‘changemakers’.

In March 2020, we were registered as Singapore’s first co-operative to unite diverse changemakers as a collective changemaking force to design meaningful solutions for good.

We hope to do 3 things for Singapore:

  • Changemaking is difficult and lonely, so we create a nourishing environment for changemakers to help each other
  • Create opportunities for diverse changemakers to collaborate and tackle complex social issues (e.g. income insecurity for gig workers, living conditions for migrant workers, etc)
  • Businesses and schools can be a force for good, so we Inspire employees and students to care about social issues and use their resources to create social change
As we embark on this journey to write a new chapter for changemaking in Singapore, we need some help!

We are looking for a Social Entrepreneur Intern to work alongside us to offer A Good Space’s paid programs to various companies and schools. These programs help A Good Space to nurture changemakers in schools and companies, and the revenue from these programs helps give A Good Space the funds it needs to continue its social impact work.

The selected intern will have the following responsibilities:

  • Brainstorm new ideas to create content (articles, graphics, videos, social experiments, etc) to send traffic to A Good Space's website and LinkedIn page
  • Source for partnership and revenue opportunities with schools and companies, to nurture more students and employees to become changemakers
  • Arrange for and sit in on sales meetings with schools and companies to understand their student development objectives / corporate giving philosophy
  • Prepare proposals that align with the objectives of these schools / companies

We are committed to your learning and growth. Should you be selected, here are some unique experiences that you can look forward to:

  • Learn and practice how to develop a business strategy to identify new market opportunities and generate income for a social enterprise
  • Learn how to identify and engage potential customers for a social enterprise, including the specific questions to ask during a sales meeting and how to listen deeply into a customer's pain points
  • Learn how to scope business deals, prepare sales presentations to potential clients and basic negotiation skills
  • Develop advanced public speaking and presentation skills
Job Requirement

1. Ownership

2. Integrity
You are honest, trustworthy and commit to doing what you say. To help you grow, we'll entrust you with important responsibilities that will stretch you past your comfort zone and we need to know that we can count on you.

3. Excellence
We are looking for people who share our drive to create meaningful social impact. If you are looking for a normal internship to fulfil a school requirement, then this is probably not for you.
