Internship Opportunities

Intern At BCHS Flyer

The Brown County Historical Society welcomes new interns in the areas of History, Education, Graphic Design, Exhibit Design, and Non-Profit Management. All internship positions are volunteer positions; however they provide job experience working in your field, references, and community involvement.

The Brown County Historical Society’s small size allows for great flexibility for our interns. We welcome the chance to work with students to customize a program that fits both their personal interests and organizational needs. Some examples of internship opportunities include:

             Marketing: Marketing and promotional materials, including posters and rack cards; design a book about Hazelwood Historic House to be sold in our gift shop

                History: Historical research on a variety of topics; historic preservation; program planning, walking tours, and WWI Victory Gardens

                Education: Develop and implement educational programs for local schools, home schoolers, scout groups, outreach programs, and summer camps; ensure current programming follows up-to-date state standards

                Arts Management: Event planning and implementation, grant writing, volunteer recruitment and coordination, neighborhood engagement, and artifact collection management (data entry and photograph collection)

Typical internships are 5 hours a week. The hours are flexible; however some weekend hours are required during the summer if your internship involves special events. The length of your internship depends on your semester length and the amount of credits you are applying for.

If you are interested in pursuing an internship opportunity with the Brown County Historical Society, please submit a resume and cover letter to Christine Dunbar, Executive Director at bchs@netnet.net.
