Internship Opportunities

Summer Internship: Museum Education and Programming

The Chadds Ford Historical Society seeks an enthusiastic and qualified individual for our museum education internship. This is an exciting opportunity to help develop museum education and interpretation programs and would provide an excellent experience for someone looking to work in museum education, history education, or public history. The intern will work closely with staff members to create enjoyable, engaging and interactive educational experiences through programs, tours and events. Training and guidance will be provided for all activities.

While we have some key tasks for the internship program, each of our internships are tailored to the student’s interests and goals by focusing on a specific project that can be used to further develop the student’s resume.

Please submit a resume, cover letter and three references to our Programs and Development Manager, Allison Schell, at aschell@chaddsfordhistory.org by Friday, May 12.
