The Women’s Sports Foundation is a great place to get a start on an exciting career. Our interns have gone on to be “movers and shakers” in the sports world and beyond!
The internship program has multiple objectives:
1. To provide sports management students with a broad exposure to the sports industry in general and, more specifically, to issues, opportunities and programming related to women’s sports and physical activity;
2. To provide a professional work experience to college students interested in pursuing sports-related careers;
3. To provide interns with access to valuable future employer contacts and assistance in determining personal career goals; and
4. To provide the Foundation, an internationally recognized 501(c)3 educational nonprofit organization, with talented, ambitious and knowledgeable individuals to assist in the implementation of our advocacy, communications, development, education and grant programs;
Where You Will Work: Interns work at the Women’s Sports Foundation in East Meadow, N.Y., located 45 minutes from New York City.
Your Committment: Interns must commit to the Foundation for a minimum of 6 months and a maximum of 1 year, and are expected to work from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Internships are available in two sessions – January to June or June to December.
Compensation: Interns receive a stipend ranging from $800/mo. to $900/mo.
Housing: The Foundation does not provide housing for interns, however, upon acceptance to the program, the Foundation will provide a list of local housing and highly encourages prospective interns to investigate all possibilities for housing through friends, family and other networks.
A Great Job! Half of your day is spent in the Foundation’s Information Referral Service answering the toll-free phone line, responding to information requests, and referring people to other sources for information. The other half is spent working in the sport career area of your choice.
