About the Internship Endowment Fund
A generous anonymous donor has made a $25,000 gift to the Museum’s permanent endowment which is intended to provide paid summer internship opportunities for Mount Anthony Union High School (MAUHS) and Southwest Tech (SWT) students. The selected student primarily reports to the Collections Manager, but will also gain experience in the Marketing, Education, and Visitors Services aspects of Museum management. The position will run for approximately two months during the summer, with the intern reporting for around 26 hours of work each week and earning standard Vermont minimum wage.
We are thrilled to have this opportunity as it will help Museum staff during a very busy time of year, and create a valuable career pathway in the non-profit sector for the young people in our community. We look forward to working with the MAUHS and SWT teams in the coming year to identify prospective candidates and build a long term pipeline for cultural engagement.
