The pre-eminent expression of lifelong learning in the United States, Chautauqua Institution comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. Over the course of nine weeks, more than 100,000 people visit Chautauqua and participate in programs, classes and community events for all ages — all within the beautiful setting of a historic lakeside village. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue.
The Development Office at Chautauqua Institution has an opening for a full-time, paid summer internship. The intern is responsible for various tasks in support of donor and guest relations, communication and marketing initiatives, data management and provides administrative support to several members of department staff.
The typical work schedule is Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm with some shifts on alternating Saturday mornings, and at other times as needed for occasional overtime. Preference will be made to candidates who are available from June 17 through August 23, with start and end dates being flexible.
