Community Engagement Internship Summer 2020
The Community Engagement department works to inspire visitation to Newfields through free, discounted, and paid admission programs. The department works in conjunction with internal and external partners to explore how Newfields impacts Indianapolis, Central Indiana, and beyond through strategic initiatives focused on the goal of driving visitation to Newfields. By examining the impact our community engagement efforts have as they relate to Pre-K through 12 Education, Inclusion and Access, Economic Impact, Volunteerism and Community Service, Partnerships and Presence, Sustainability, and Wellness, we can better understand how we engage with our community as a cultural institution.
Internship projects in this department include building and strengthening partnerships with local, statewide, and national organizations, as well as benchmarking community engagement efforts. The department collaborates with others to focus our impact in strategic, meaningful, and relevant ways to build a sustainable future through reaching new audiences, enhancing the Newfields brand, and collaborating with the greater community. Students studying civic and community engagement, non-profit management, and other fields would greatly benefit from this internship experience. Ideal candidates are creative, passionate, possess attention to detail, and have strong written and verbal communication skills.
