Part-Time Museum Interpreters
The Paul Revere House is looking for undergraduate or graduate students interested in internships for the Spring 2024 semester. Interns will participate in most day-to-day site activities (interacting with the public, speaking to school groups, curatorial duties as needed) and complete a research or other project determined by prior agreement between the intern and the Revere House internship supervisor. Projects can relate to Paul Revere, Boston in the American Revolution, or the history of the house or the North End neighborhood. Examples of past project topics include Patriots’ use of Mohawk imagery, slavery in colonial Boston, and immigrant women’s social clubs in the early twentieth century.
Internships are unpaid and preference is given to applicants planning to do their internship for academic credit. Internships are typically 10-20 hours a week, with the number of weeks to be agreed upon before the internship starts. Typically, all work is on site. Most of the site is wheelchair-accessible and we will work with interns to ensure all accessibility needs are met.
Preferred qualifications: coursework or experience in history, museums, or a related field; comfort working with the public. We strive to be an inclusive organization at all levels, and welcome applications from candidates who identify as part of groups that are underrepresented in the history and museum fields.
To apply: Send resume and cover letter to Tegan Kehoe, Research and Adult Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 8. Please include “Spring 2024 internship” in the subject line.
We welcome the assistance of committed volunteers. The areas where we generally use volunteers are: visitor services, gardening, light office work and research. Please send an e-mail to email@example.com to share your interests and find out about our current needs.
