Kennett Square, Pennsylvania
Posted: Friday, January 10, 2014
Longwood Gardens offers excellent professional opportunities to gain practical experience, learn career skills, and study in one of the world's premier display gardens.
The Education Intern will collaborate with Longwood Gardens’ various educational divisions to create dynamic and innovative educational programming for learners of all ages, especially School & Youth.
In this unique opportunity, the intern will gain a complete perspective of public gardens education by being immersed in Longwood’s educational programming. The intern will assist with onsite and online curricular programming including school trips, summer camps, Scout days, student volunteers, interactive video conferencing programs, and teacher professional development.
Tasks vary from day-to-day and are, generally, project based. Occasionally, the intern will assist other educational divisions, such International & Domestic Studies (college-level) and Continuing Education, with various projects. Interns with background knowledge of curriculum standards will find the experience to be beneficial. The successful candidate is a self-motivated, computer-literate, detail-oriented, and organized individual looking for a vibrant experience in a collaborative educational environment.
This is a 3 or 12 month paid internship with benefits: http://longwoodgardens.org/education/college-and-university-programs/internships-for-us-students/student-housing-benefits
