We host interns in our Administration, Communications, Education and Programs Departments. Interns are typically selected in August (for the fall), January (for the spring), and May (for the summer). Currently, the Programs Department is seeking an intern for Fall 2018:
Kidzu seeks an intern to plan, develop and facilitate museum programs and operations. This internship includes hands-on, professional experience both behind the scenes on the front-line working with both children and adults. The goal for this internship is to give a well-rounded understanding of how a mid-sized children’s museum functions from day-to-day and to provide experience working within the fabric of a long-term strategic plan. The intern will work within all areas of the museum including operations, development, programs, and exhibits, but with a larger focus on programming. Our ideal intern will have past experience working with children, have confidence in front of small to medium-sized groups, and have a passion for fun and learning. Though unpaid, this internship provides the opportunity to explore career interests, network with professionals, and have some fun while learning.
