We’re always looking for people who want to join us in preserving and sharing the 100th/442nd/MIS legacy.
Our internships offer pre-professional work experience for college students and recent graduates and for individuals in the workforce looking to make a career change.
GFBNEC offers interns the unique and invaluable opportunity to work alongside nonprofit professionals as well as veterans and their contemporaries. Find out whether a community-based nonprofit career is right for you.
The Collections Intern will focus on GFBNEC’s Hanashi Oral History Collection (over 1,200 audio-visual interviews of Japanese American WWII veterans) and photo, documents and artifacts from GFBNEC’s Special Collection. Specifically, the intern will view, analyze and evaluate the contents within both Collections and will also create a new database with the findings (i.e., veteran/family bio, interview evaluations, highlights, interview ratings, story concepts, etc.) for future use by staff. The ancillary duties will include research, data entry and writing qualitative notes with use of keywords to be entered into reports and databases. The intern will create a final project using the Collections which can be in the form of a mini-documentary script, video, essay, poem, song, podcast, social media postings or any other format that can be shared with the public.
The internship is 40-hours/week from 9 AM to 5:30 PM. $16/hour funded by the Getty Foundation. 10-week (June-August), 40-hour per week (1-2 days in-person).
