Internships: Each year the Museum of Motherhood (MOM) welcomes interns from a variety of disciplines. Each internship seeks to balance individual goals and needs with those of the museum’s. Study labs, online courses, individual projects, visual displays, research, and guest docent opportunities are just a few of the ways MOM has worked with university and graduate students since 2011. Onsite and remote internships are available for the 2017 academic year. Write Director, M. Joy Rose, 538 28th St. N. St. Petersburg: firstname.lastname@example.org
The museum covers a broad spectrum of topics. An internship can be tailored to an individual’s interests and needs. Interactions from experts, professionals, artists, authors and students are key to our mission, and we rely on volunteerism for much of our staffing.
Ongoing exhibits, attendance, and participation at M.O.M. See ‘Mother The Job’, a multi-media exhibit about the role of mother and economic capital vs. human capital and the ‘Global Motherhood’ exhibit.
Facilitate a study online or on-site. Come up with a questionnaire; implement and execute the study.
