Internship Opportunities

On-Site Internships

The volunteer internship program at Historic Stagville gives students experience in public history at one of North Carolina’s most distinctive historic sites. Interns can learn and develop skills in Public Speaking, Program Development, Education, Public History, Research, and Marketing. Stagville welcomes undergraduate and graduate interns. Semester internships are unpaid, and school credit may be available, depending on the student and their individual school program. Each intern must make a significant time commitment and have their own transportation available.

Internship Components 

Each internship will include two components: interpretation, and an internship project. For interpretation, all interns will learn to give guided tours, answer questions at the front desk, and interpret the site’s history. Our interns should be energized to discuss race, slavery, and history with the public. Each intern will also complete an individual project that advances the work of Historic Stagville, while also benefiting the student. A written proposal will be submitted to the Assistant Site Manage for approval before work begins. All projects should have a tangible, public product (such as a report, display, presentation, outreach program, or education program).
