Historic NewtonPublic Programs Intern
Site Hours: Tuesday-Friday: 11 am to 5 pm; Saturday and Sunday: 12 Noon to 5 pm
"Historic Newton seeks a Public Programs Intern to assist with its dynamic and busy programming schedule. Working with the Curator of Education, the intern will learn about programming from start to finish, including program development, marketing, and evaluation. The intern will also assist in planning Historic Newton’s biggest event of the year, the Newton House Tour, including solicitation and coordination of the volunteers for this event. There will also be exposure to the planning and installation of our new Underground Railroad exhibit, opening in early 2012. Research skills, attention to detail, self-motivation and good computer skills are necessary; training will be provided. Historic Newton encourages the inquiry and exploration of Newton within the broad context of American history. To accomplish this it collects, preserves, and exhibits historical artifacts of local significance and presents public programs that involve the diverse population of Newton and the region.
