2019 Internship Opportunities
Arts on the Block - Students interested in community outreach and the arts will benefit from hands-on experience at this dynamic local non-profit organization that provides workforce development training to area teens. Arts on the Block studio assistants support the Studio Manager by helping design projects, assisting with maintaining and organizing studio and office inventory, and contributing to event planning. Student interns can also take advantage of opportunities to learn about the grant writing process and financial logistics of running a non-profit. One position available for a rising junior or senior; school year and summer opportunities.
Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS) at Georgetown University - Student interns at CCAS will interact with Georgetown students, faculty, and scholars from a variety of national and international programs. Be a part of CCAS's important work supporting educators at the annual Summer Teacher Institute (STI). Student interns will assist with event management tasks before, during and after STI, in addition to completing other office tasks for colleagues, compiling annual report data, and possibly working on website updates. Skill with video and audio recording is a plus, but training is available from Georgetown University's library technology office. Up to two positions available for rising juniors and seniors; summer only.
VIKA Engineering & Architecture - Internships at VIKA appeal to a diverse range of interests. Beyond the compelling, detail-oriented drafting and planning of landscape design, students can get involved in civil engineering, surveying, and environmental planning. Exciting developments in the field of surveying include the practical application of drones for land-mapping. Students interested in how landscape architecture intersects with ecology can learn about wetlands management and stream identification. Up to two positions available for rising seniors only; two month summer commitment with potential to extend into school year.
Three Barrie School students interned at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS) at Georgetown University last summer. CCAS partners with the Student Ambassadors Program at Bethlehem University in the West Bank and with the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations (NCUSAR) in Washington DC to bring undergraduate student interns to Georgetown’s campus to work with CCAS faculty and staff. Last summer, the program welcomed student interns from Barrie School and George Washington University.
