Education Internship

Education Intern Spring 2023

INTERNSHIP DESCRIPTION
Capital Jewish Museum is hosting two education interns in spring 2023. The interns will work under the supervision of the museum educators and in collaboration with the rest of the staff as part of the core team building a new museum. Education interns assist with daily tasks that pertain to the museum’s opening and ongoing public programs and create resources and materials for adult or family audiences. They will be trained as a tour guide, assist with volunteer, and staff training and help prepare the community action lab for the spring opening. These positions have a flexible schedule, but the intern must commit 20 – 24 hours per week.

Youth and Family Programs Internship Develop individual programs for the community action lab for families, youths and schools that are part of our core offerings. These programs may be part of a maker morning, field trip, story time or drop-in lab time. During these programs visitors will actively test tools as changemakers as they consider how to engage in their communities and leave feeling empowered with tangible next steps.

Adult Programs Internship Develop core programs for the community action lab for adults that incorporate social action and civic engagement opportunities, provide educational resources, and action steps for ongoing involvement. Identify direct service or mission-similar partners to enhance programmatic initiatives. These programs may be part of after-hours events, themed series, or interactive workshops.

DURATION
Internship will be for the spring semester, January – May 2023. This is a hybrid virtual and in person internship requiring 20 – 24 hours per week.
