This volunteer position or internship is focused on providing real-world training and an out-of-classroom educational experience to those interested in pursuing a career in communications, public relations, journalism, and/or arts administration.
This volunteer position can be offsite or in our office. If working offsite, you may be required to periodically come into the office. If working onsite, we will schedule your days. This is an unpaid volunteer position; however, it can also equate to an internship with exchanged hours worked for university credit. We would be happy to make arrangements to accommodate this. We would like a commitment of at least 6 hours a week (or to be determined by an internship). This position can be ongoing, but we would like your engagement for at least 2-3 months.
