The Internship Program at the Tennessee Holocaust Commission is designed to provide college students with practical experience and mentorship. In addition to applicable work experience, interns will have the opportunity to participate in development seminars and Holocaust education sessions with relevant experts in the field. The goal of these seminars are to educate interns on the history of the Holocaust and to prepare them for entering the workforce. All graduates of the program emerge with a better understanding of how to navigate the professional landscape and an improved fluency in Holocaust history.
“I have worked in professional settings before, but have not had the opportunity to have so much one-on-one and small group discussion with my supervisors and other members of the organization. It was really helpful to be able to have informal discussion with both members of the commission and professionals in other fields; I feel much more comfortable having conversations about my career goals and asking questions of other professionals”. – Ruby Stricker (Former Intern, 2019)
Internships last three (3) months and typically require 10-15 hours per week. The internship may be extended if desired by both staff and intern.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
