The Birmingham Holocaust Education Center (BHEC) offers unpaid internships for undergraduate, recent graduate, and graduate students during the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Interns will be introduced to certain facets of the BHEC, such as archives and library studies, public relations/marketing, nonprofit management and grant writing. Additionally, interns gain practical work experience and workings with the public in different capacities (media, students, donors, etc.). While hours are flexible, interns needing course credit for their internship will have to provide hours & project/course needs as well as a point of contact at their educational institution.
