We are looking for creative, energetic and motivated interns who want to help us create and execute our 2015 events schedule. Woodlawn hosts many weddings, but we are in the midst of expanding our programming to bring new audiences to our site and we need help planning and coordinating these events. The position will include some historical research, outreach and marketing, as well as typical event planning and basic fundraising duties. We promise you won't be bored. All experience considered, but those in college or with a college degree and event planning experience at all levels preferred. Please have a strong attention to detail, enjoy a variety of tasks, have a happy spirit, be a "people person" and a willingness to chip in whenever needed. Expect to work a few evenings and weekends a month. If you love saving places in new ways, we will love you!
We are unable to offer a stipend, but are happy to work with you to offer academic credit, and expect that you will gain additional event creation experience and related skills through this position. Applicants who can stay with us through the fall semester may have priority.
Woodlawn/Pope Leighey site is located near Mount Vernon and Fort Belvoir area. A car is not required, but our site is not easily accessible by public transportation, so a car is usually preferred. We are a small staff, so being able to use your own laptop when necessary would also be useful. Interns will be supervised by our Program Assistant for Events & Fundraising and other site staff as required.
