Spring 2018 Development and Administration Board Relations Departments Internships

Grand Rapids Symphony - Grand Rapds, Michigan


The Grand Rapids Symphony is looking for dynamic, confident, college-level student leaders to support our Development and Administration Board Relations departments including its growing volunteer program, board relations activities, vital corporate/foundation development efforts, unique fund and friend-raising events, special projects and annual campaign areas. 

We are looking for students who wish to grow their overall professional skills and would enjoy a unique learning opportunity with a premier cultural organization internship that involves direct hands on responsibilities across these two departments. 

How this internship looks is flexible. We will work with your schedule, but 15 to 20 hours is needed per week for each internship position. There will be weeks when more than 20 hours are requested at events or for special projects if the student is available.

 While unpaid, these are higher level internships that promise marketable experience with a leading cultural organization.

Parking provided for in-office work. Mileage covered for work-related local travel.
