South Carolina State Museum’s Junior Internship Program is seeking youth ages 15-17 who want to make a difference in the lives of children while gaining leadership and teaching experience. This is especially geared towards youth who are considering a career in education for their future.

This program is a wonderful way for motivated teens to gain valuable pre-employment experience in an educational setting. This is an unpaid volunteer position. Successfully completing the internship can be a great item for resumes and college applications.

Interns will have the opportunity to work alongside SCSM staff at summer camp during weeks of their choice beginning May 29 through August 11. Junior Interns must be able to commit to at least one week of service to be considered, with a maximum of five weeks allowed. Apply early in order to secure your weeks, as there are limited slots for interns each camp.

Interns will be required to attend training on Tuesday, May 23 from 6-8pm, where they will not only be given information about the museum in general, but learn specifically how to interact and assist during summer camp. Interns should enjoy working with children!
