Opportunities for High School Students
We are a part of Nonprofit High School. It’s a collaborative internship program created by four different nonprofit organizations in Lane County: The Shelton McMurphey Johnson House; the Lane County History MuseumAdventure! Children’s Museum; and Wordcrafters. The Nonprofit High School project is specifically designed to fulfill a high school student’s community service requirement for graduation while teaching workplace skills and encouraging in-depth understanding and engagement in non-profit involvement. Click here for a brochure on the program or visit to apply.

For undergrads and non-MFA graduate students, we offer internship opportunities in social media management, non-profit administration, program coordination, education, and marketing.
