Nonprofit internships can be some of the most fulfilling and meaningful work experiences one can have during their time in college. With the fall semester fast-approaching, we are happy to share that three local nonprofits have put out a final call for interns. From art education to refugee resettlement to land conservation—the opportunities to make an impact as an intern in Northwest Arkansas don't get much better than these.
Art Feeds Interns for Fall 2019
Art Feeds is looking for a self starter, creative, continuous learner who can manage messes and enjoys making the world a little brighter + more fun. If you are unfamiliar with Art Feeds, they work with schools and children's organizations to implement creative and expressive curriculum with the primary aim of feeding the creative development and facilitating emotional expression in children. They strive to cultivate an environment where students are empowered to express themselves. Students are exposed to all forms of art: painting, drawing, dancing, sculpting, writing, music, photography, performing arts, mural making and more. They use these forms of expression to help the students explore, express and integrate emotional expression through visual, performing and creative arts. Their programs and processes are created to facilitate healing as well as cognitive and developmental growth.
Art Feeds is interested in who you are, not the awards you have received. Internships are on a semester basis and require a generous time commitment. These internships are unpaid and are located in Fayetteville, AR. No housing provided, but they are happy to work with institutions to arrange academic credit where available. Their fall internship will begin in late August and end the first week of December. Following your intern application, they may request an interview in their downtown Fayetteville office.
