INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Interns have the chance to work on a variety of projects ranging from working with business owners on improving their social media skills to helping plan a major street festival. Interning for us can help individuals learn about different business marketing campaigns and activities, gain an overview of the different aspects of running a business and build a track record. A letter of recommendation may be earned upon completion of the program. Though this internship is unpaid, we hope you’ll find the experience, skills, and network gained invaluable. Fill out the application and send it along with your resume to Program Manager, Karina Velazquez, at karina@sdbd.org.
