Internships

Internships with Riverview Gardens provide an opportunity for experiential learning in a variety of fields. Interns should be committed to serving the mission and goals of Riverview Gardens, while pursuing their own learning goals. 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 for fund internships. To begin the internship process, send a letter of interest and resume to Kelly Nutty at [email protected].

Below are general internships focus areas. Customized internship opportunities based on needs and interest are available.
