Some summer internships consist of making copies, getting coffee for the supervisors, and filing documents under florescent lights from 8-5. This is not one of those internships. At CIY, our Event Staff (or interns) are an important part of helping us accomplish our mission and as such, they play a critical role in our summer events. In the summer of 2015 the programs of MOVE, MIX, and ENGAGE: SERVICE will serve over 35,000 students and adult volunteers. We could not do what we do in each of these programs without the help of our Summer Event Staff. Our Event Staff are highly valued and deeply loved by our organization. If you’ve found your way to this page, you are probably thinking about applying for an Event Staff position with one of our summer programs, so below are a few important things to know.
