A Note About the Internships/Volunteer Roles

The internship program is designed to supplement academic course studies and theory with practical work and assignments. In this, interns will be engaged in practical tasks in order to gain “real world” experience. Students can then use the campaigns and content they work on in their portfolios and resumes. Working on an internship basis allows the students to work freely on actual campaigns without the typical stress and deadlines of actual client work.
