Intern or Volunteer

Internship and volunteer inquiries for Co-Prosperity Sphere, Lumpen Magazine, and Lumpen Radio are reviewed quarterly by committee of Public Media Institute volunteers and administrators.

Internship should be proposed 3 months prior to the requested period. Internships last at least 6 months and no longer than a year, entail a 6 hour commitment weekly, and are designed with the intern to focus on projects or skills that apply to their areas of interest and desired learning.

Volunteer roles are available across the many programs of Public Media Institute - help us understand what you're interested in so we can plug you in with the appropriate folks.
