Indiana Humanities Summer Intern
- Seeking summer intern for 2011 (Dates somewhat flexible; tentative mid-May through mid-August term)
- 20-30 hours a week
Indiana Humanities is a statewide nonprofit that encourages Hoosiers to think, read and talk. We offer an exciting and challenging internship opportunity for a hard-working and self-motivating individual who is passionate about the humanities and their ability to contribute to making our state a world-class place to live and work. We are a small staff of five, so interns at Indiana Humanities are often in charge of their own projects and have the opportunity to substantially contribute to the organization.
Primary responsibilities will be to assist the communications team with various projects, including planning and organizing logistics for special programs and events, writing and distributing press releases, writing content for the blog, increasing the social networking presence, researching best practices, and thinking critically about how best to reach our target audiences. A significant amount of the intern’s time will be spent on “Food for Thought,” our two-year program designed to tackle a number of food-related issues, both globally and locally.
