Internships

Internships with Riverview Gardens provide an opportunity for experiential learning in a variety of fields. Opportunities are available on an on-going basis. As a non-profit, we are only able to provide unpaid internships; however, we work with colleges and universities to determine grant opportunities to fund internships. To begin the internship process, send a letter of interest and resume to Pilar Martinez at [email protected].
