Since its founding in 1978, the Los Angeles Conservancy has been committed to educating the public about Los Angeles County’s history, architecture, and preservation efforts. Education programs teach students and adults to see beyond the traditional concept of “landmarks” in order to understand neighborhoods and buildings in a context that emphasizes the role of history, culture, and community. The Education Intern will work primarily on programs related to the Conservancy’s Youth Initiative, which focuses on students, teachers, and young people. Interns with a strong interest in teaching and education are encouraged to apply.
The Education Specialist and Program Coordinator provide direct supervision of the intern’s work. The intern, as with all members of the education department, answers to the Director of Education.
The intern will work a Monday through Friday work week, with some weekends and after hour work required. Flexible hours are a must.
The intern will gain experience researching, creating and teaching educational programs for students, staffing educational events that reach audiences through various learning styles, and assessing the effectiveness of programs. In addition to these projects, the Education Intern will participate in many aspects of the Conservancy’s daily operations, including staff, board, and department meetings and planning sessions. The intern will gain experience working with volunteers, will be immersed in a collaborative team environment, and will gain an understanding of how the departments in a nonprofit organization work together to carry out a mission.
A designated desk, work area, computer, and telephone will be reserved for the Education Intern’s use for ten weeks between June and August 2018. The intern will receive a $5,500 stipend.
