About our

  • Be able to dedicate 2-3 days a week June 4, 2018 through August, 2018

  • Be familiar with MAC OS, Microsoft Office, social networking, and internet research
  • Must be able to work independently and meet deadlines with little supervision

All internships are unpaid but we will work with you to receive college credit if you need it.
