Children's Miracle Network interns gain experience in many areas including marketing, communications, public relations, event planning, corporate relations, and volunteer coordination and management. From helping to plan major fundraising events, to assisting with corporate partner campaigns, to creating marketing and donor stewardship materials, interns need the ability to hit the ground running. Our internships are resume-building, unpaid academic experiences. The hours are flexible. We strongly prefer that internships be "for credit" or otherwise approved by or required by the school or university.
- We are currently accepting internship applications for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.
- To apply, send cover letter and resume to Danielle Sunday, Director, [email protected]
