The Museum Programming Intern will work directly with the Director of Collections & Programming. Interns must commit a minimum of 10 hours per week for this internship, with required hours select evenings and weekend afternoons each week. Since this is an unpaid internship, interns are encouraged to earn academic credit for this experience. Please consult with your faculty advisor.
Intern duties will include program research, developing activities for programs, and drafting communication materials to promote programs. They will assist with both children’s and adult programming at Apple Days in September and programming for the holiday season. They may be asked to assist with the implementation of a variety of programs, including Design After Dark, the Single Sisters Series, and Free Sundays at the Museum as needed. Interns will gain experience planning and executing a museum program.
The successful intern will be detail oriented and organized. They will exhibit an eagerness and ability to learn quickly, and able to transition from task to task, as needed, in a fast-paced environment. The successful intern will be able and willing to interact with members of the public of all ages. Prior experience in programming or planning events is preferred, but not required.
