The folks at VH1 Save the Music are currently looking for outstanding students to fulfill a Fall Semester internship position. Here’s what they wrote to us in an email:
We would like to know if you have students that fulfill the criteria. If so, can you please send me their resumes and get the word out if students are looking for internships this Fall Semester. Below is the description and requirements for the internship opportunity.
The VH1 Save the Music Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music in America’s public schools and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of a complete education. The Foundation grants instrumental packages to public elementary and middle schools, which do not have existing instrumental music programs, around the nation. The VH1 Save The Music Foundation internship is a non-paid, hands-on opportunity in New York City to learn about the operations and work of a non-profit organization and to develop skills transferrable to range of work.
Interns will receive long-term and short-term projects and will learn to independently manage their time, work, and deadlines. Both the Program and Development teams will give interns projects; this will expose them to the full range of the Foundation’s operations and efforts. The work environment here is fast-paced and requires multi-tasking capabilities as interns are treated as part of the team.
The Program team works with music teachers, principals, school administrators, school district personnel, superintendents, and local arts organizations to ensure all students in a district have equal access to instrumental music education. The Development team raises funds (via individual donors, foundations, corporate sponsorships, and fundraising events) to make this possible.
YOU MUST RECEIVE COLLEGE CREDIT TO APPLY FOR THIS INTERNSHIP. We prefer students majoring in music, music education, music business, marketing and/or public affairs who are interested in non-profit organizations and/or special events. If you are interested in applying for an internship opportunity, please email your resume and cover letter. Please write in the subject line: VH1 Save the Music Foundation Intern and specify the semester for which you are applying.
