Hopeprint Internships

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.

We are interviewing now for the following internships at our Syracuse, NY locations:
