2012 Internship and Volunteer Opportunities
We regularly offer unpaid internships to college and graduate students in the Providence area. We also employ students in paid administrative support roles through the Federal Work-Study program. Our student workers take away from their time at PPS not only a greater understanding of historic preservation but also the general work experience derived from participating as part of a busy work team and interacting with the public.
Administrative work includes general office support such as assisting with computer and database work, special events, mailings, filing, errands, receiving visitors, and answering phones. Student applicants must commit to a consistently reliable schedule. Knowledge of Microsoft Office is required. For paid positions, student candidates must be Federal Work-Study eligible as certified by their educational institutions.
