KERA Community Engagement Internship – Summer 2017
Do you get excited about bringing people together? Are you passionate about working with children, PBS documentaries, social media and connecting diverse communities with great storytelling? Do you want to work in an award-winning newsroom learning how to connect people with great radio and digital journalism? If yes – and you’re a student with designs on a career in liberal arts, history, communications, journalism, marketing or the non-profit world – you might just be the Community Engagement Intern KERA is looking for.
You’d be helping KERA engage new and existing audiences. And you’d be supporting the station’s outreach efforts by helping with documentary screenings, children’s outreach events, working with the Community Advisory Board and community partner organizations. We’re hoping to find a detail-oriented and organized multitasker with great writing skills – and who could stay with us through the summer.
As a part of the Community Engagement team you will be expected to serve as a KERA ambassador to community groups and nonprofits across North Texas; assist with the creation and implementation of engagement programs and events around education, children’s programming and the station’s special projects and initiatives. You’ll also assist with tracking audience data and cultivating relationships with new community partners.
Requirements: Enrollment as a full-time graduate student or undergrad with freshman year completed, intent to complete internship for class credit (unpaid), available 10-20 hours a week, some knowledge of public media, a knack for communications and the samples (projects, blog posts, schoolwork, etc.) to show it.
We’re currently accepting applications for Summer 2017. Application deadline is March 31, 2017.
