Call for Interns

Fall Internship 2022

The First Amendment Museum is seeking interns (paid via stipend) for the Fall (September – December) of 2022. Located in Augusta, Maine, the Museum is a new, non-partisan organization dedicated to educating people about, and inspiring them to exercise, their First Amendment freedoms—freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition. 

The interns will be expected to work closely with the Manager of Visitor Experience and the Museum staff to conduct guided tours for the general public, conduct research and writing for Museum exhibitions and special projects, and assist with Museum programming and special events.

Some additional hours during special events and evenings may be required periodically. 

The First Amendment Museum is offering a $1,500 stipend for the total internship, as well as other professional development opportunities including admission to affiliated museums in New England, one-on-one time with other professional staff, inclusion in staff workshops, and more. Interns will be expected to commit to the entire duration of time. Hours will be determined based on the availability of each intern.
