The season includes a minimum of 32 home games, plus additional events at the stadium. Attendance at these events is mandatory. While each internship has a focus area, we are a small organization and everyone wears multiple hats. Flexibility and collaboration are key parts of our program.
All internships are unpaid and must tie the experience to the intern’s formal education program by integrated coursework or the receipt of academic credit.
Applications will be accepted until all roles are filled, so please do not hesitate to apply if you are interested.
