Hopeprint Interns are required to be high school graduates, enrolled in college and/or 19+ yrs old. Assistant Internships are offered on special occasion to highly recommended high school students.
Hopeprint's Internship Programs provide hands-on opportunities for emerging leaders who wish to work in a multicultural context with an intentionally embedded, kindred posture. Gain experience in program design, implementation and volunteer management. Each of our internships are a total of 320 hours (Summer, approximately 40 hrs/wk for 8 wks / Schoolyear, approximately 10 hrs/wk for 32 wks). Note: For internships programs requiring a higher number of hours, additional responsibilities are assigned.
Each internship includes different skill-building and opportunities. In the department where interns are leading, they are responsible to plan, coordinate and implement the programs and initiatives under their supervision. This includes cross-cultural relationship building, curriculum implementation, and volunteer management. Interns both participate on and lead teams, giving opportunities to build synergistic efforts in the Hopeprint community and learn from one another.
