The Holden Arboretum
The Holden Arboretum has a two-year paid internship opportunity with benefits available in our Education and Public Programs Department.
The Education Intern will receive practical work experience, assisting with programs centered on public horticulture, natural history and science / environmental education. Opportunities exist to gain experience with exhibit development, school programming, teaching, writing and developing educational materials, based on the intern’s interest and Holden’s annual needs.
This internship opportunity offers recent graduates in education, horticulture, conservation or natural sciences the opportunity to experience various job responsibilities in a professional environment. This unique two-year program will also provide the opportunity to work on both large and small projects from concept development to final implementation and review. On-the-job instruction, educational sessions and field trips to other horticultural/natural science institutions offer a perfect complement to academic study.
Holden has onsite housing available. Located just 30 minutes east of Cleveland, museums, professional sports, ethnic areas and festivals are within reasonable driving distance.
This is a two-year paid internship position starting in January 2014. Some weekend work will be required.
