Please share the following StoryCorps internship opportunities with your students. A more detailed description of each internship is available at http://storycorps.org/about/employment-opportunities.
StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit project whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. Our interns are intelligent, curious, motivated, and resourceful individuals devoted to inspiring and assisting everyday Americans in recording their stories in sound. Internships are available in both the Program and the Operations side of our Peabody Award-winning nonprofit organization.
StoryCorps offers two sessions of intern opportunities: Winter/Spring from January to June and Summer/Fall from June to December. The upcoming internship session will run from June 1, 2010–December 23, 2010.
Summer or Fall only applications will be reviewed on a case by case basis but preference will be given to candidates able to commit to the full session.
Unless otherwise noted, StoryCorps interns work in the morning (9:30 am–1:30 pm) or in the afternoons (1:30–5:30 pm) Monday through Friday for a total of 20 hours per week. StoryCorps provides a weekly stipend of $55 to help cover lunch and transportation expenses. Our interns take part in a fast-paced, supportive, and creative work environment at our offices in Brooklyn, New York.
Applications for the Summer/Fall 2010 session are due by April 16, 2010. We are also accepting applications for future sessions on a rolling basis.
