Internship Description

We would also greatly benefit from the additional assistance with the summer season productions, with the preparations for the coming season, and with research for future seasons.

Our summer intern should be motivated and deliver on assigned marketing projects as it relates to fundraising, social media and other outreach. Each intern will benefit from the experience within a nonprofit that also operates as a business with several different teams working toward one goal. They will learn how they play role as one person on a large team, while doing work that illustrates their ability to contribute to the big picture in any company with the bonus of working for a great cause.
