College Internship Program

Overview:

Over the past 2 years TheGreekend has grown in more ways than we could have imagined! One of our most successful initiatives was our Summer 2020 College Internship Program. We received dozens of applications from students of Greek heritage throughout the U.S. and Canada and selected a talented team of 10 Social Media Interns!

TheGreekend’s College Internship Program is a non-compensated 10-week internship program that runs through summer. Interns make connections with other young adults from across the continent and add to their creative portfolios and resume.

Note: Applications for Summer 2021 Interns are not open yet. Please check back in late Spring 2021.

Positions:

Our interns serve in a variety of positions within our organization. Some have even created their own position based off their unique interests and talents. Interns work individually and in teams to teach and learn from their new network.

  • Content Creation
  • Program Development
  • Public Relations
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Web Design

“Being an intern for TheGreekend was the highlight of my summer! I was able to combine my marketing and management skills in being able to create promotional content and organize online events. Not only was I able to use my skills that I had already, but I was able to build upon them and learn from others. Being able to meet different Greeks from around the US & Canada was amazing, and was one of the most fun parts of my summer! I’m looking forward to meeting TheGreekend family in person sometime in the near future! I am honored and thankful that I was able to be apart of the first group of TheGreekend interns ever.”

I was able to improve my marketing and communication skills and overall learned a lot! Absolutely did not regret working for TheGreekend, it’s definitely worth it!”

“I had such a great time working for TheGreekend! I loved that I was able to virtually meet the other Greek interns from across the United States & Canada. We are all super close and plan to meet in-person sometime in the near future! My graphic designing skills were strengthened because of the internship and I learned more about the Greek events which occur throughout the summer. Overall, my experience with TheGreekend was outstanding & I’m so blessed that I was accepted for the internship!”

“Being part of The Greekend Intern team has definitely been one of the highlights of my 2020 year. Not only did I have the opportunity to create content, advance my digital marketing skill set and brainstorm so many different cultural engagement related ideas, but I also got to meet an amazing group of Greeks from all over North America that I wish I met sooner. This was such an amazing experience that I am so grateful to have been a part of the team, and I hope to meet everyone in person at a Greekend event sometime very soon. It is such an amazing opportunity for anyone who is interested in marketing, promotions or digital communications and looking to enhance their connection with their Greek heritage and culture!”
