The goal of this program is to give interns a strong background in wolf information and experience in conveying this information to the public. Interns conduct a variety of indoor and outdoor wolf and wolf-related education programs. Programs may have as few as two or as many as 200 participants and vary in length from 30 minutes to three hours.
Academic year interns will have the opportunity to work with the general public as well as with visiting school and scout groups, bus tour groups, family weekends and adult programs. Interns will also contribute to the programming of the Center through special projects and support work. Projects are selected based on the talents and interests of the intern, as well as the current needs of the Center. Other areas of training include program development, scheduling of visiting groups, exhibit cleaning and curation, and possibly time spent in the retail, office and information departments.
The International Wolf Center provides Academic Year Interns with a $2,000.00 per month stiped. Academic Year Interns are responsible for their own housing. All interns will be responsible for providing their own food and transportation to and from the International Wolf Center. Interns are welcome to share living quarters with other interns if interested.
