Each year, ITA is fortunate to work with a talented and diverse group of administrative interns. These interns come from around the world and bring their unique talents and experiences to us, working on a wide range of projects that support ITA and help us continually move our mission forward.
As we continue to grow, we are excited to expand opportunities for students to engage in the work that we do and provide unique internship experiences. We are expanding our internship program with the addition of a new writing internship position! This position is designed for students who are currently majoring in an English degree program and are interested in learning more about the creative arts therapies and non-profit management. Students in this position will work directly with ITA staff on a wide variety of projects of the course of their internship.
