Spells Summer Internships
March 14th, 2011

Do you like kids? Writing? Dressing like a secret agent? If so, this could be the internship for you!

Join Spells Writing Lab this summer as we plan and host a free summer day camp at our North Philadelphia headquarters. Drawing young writers from around the city, our writing camp focuses on a different theme each week, providing enrichment and excitement for Philly’s kids. Interns will work directly with instructors and students, gaining valuable experience in many areas of educational programming and running a non-profit.

We’re now accepting applications for our summer internships, which run from early June through mid-August.

To apply, please send an email to volunteer@phillyspells.org by Friday, April 1. The email should include a PDF attachment of your current resume and a cover letter pasted into the body of the email that highlights specific skills and experience you would bring to Spells, as well as what you hope to gain from the internship.

  • Experience with kids in a professional setting preferred
  • Editing, proofreading, or design skills a plus

We look forward to hearing from you!
