Additional Information

The U.S.-Caribbean relationship is of great importance. Often called our “Third Border,” the Caribbean shares not only borders, we also share common interests, culture, and heritage. You will work with the Office of Caribbean Affairs to raise public awareness on the “Year of the Caribbean” which highlights U.S.-Caribbean 2020 strategy and the U.S.-Caribbean Resilience Partnership, through the creation of social media content, which may include articles, blogs, infographics, memes, and videos. Your materials will be used throughout the Caribbean region and you’ll be able to see your work posted on the official webpage. This is a great opportunity to learn how diplomacy engages with the public on important policy issues through the use of social media.
