The famous American paleontologist George Gaylord Simpson once said, “I have a debt, a loyalty to the museum; the best place for me to do what I wanted to do.”
The Eastern Washington State Historical Society has occasional openings at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture for young adults to have the chance to expand their knowledge in addition to learning valuable skills for a career. With a museum internship, youth may choose which specific area they would like to work in, be it collections, research, exhibit development, education, public engagement, or special projects. These opportunities provide the benefit of pursuing interests on multiple levels, while gaining applicable, real-world experience both for a resume and for life. The museum will occasionally be recruiting for various internship positions, but if you would like to be considered for either a credit-based or paid internship, please send your request with your qualifications to the Museum's Volunteer and Intern Coordinator Logan Camporeale at Logan.Camporeale@northwestmuseum.org.
