Assist the marketing department with branding and designing print collateral using Adobe Creative Suite programs, updating website content for multiple websites and developing new and innovative ways to promote ideas (all suggestions are welcome and encouraged).

Research
Help to gather information about local events, community activities and businesses in our service areas.

Social Media

- Experience or coursework in basic marketing
- Ability to conduct focused internet research
- Knowledge of social media platforms
- High levels of writing and communication skills
- Advanced skills with all Microsoft Office applications
- Knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign and Photoshop) is helpful, but not required

This internship is unpaid, but is available for school credit. This is an excellent opportunity to advance your resume and receive future recommendations and references. Many interns have also gone on to accept paid positions within the organization after their internship is completed.
