Internships with SoLit

Southern Lit Alliance offers semester-long internships for college students that encourage knowledge and experience in nonprofit management, development, and programming. Our interns leave with a comprehensive grasp of the expansive operations that are integral to nonprofits and community initiatives.

As a So Lit intern, you will gain valuable experience, insight, and knowledge about marketing, event planning, program development, and general nonprofit management. Our internships involve so much more than fetching coffee and filing papers (though there’s a little bit of that too). Below, you'll find a description of our Communications internship.

Learn how to build community-wide events and high-impact public programs from the ground up, recruiting and managing volunteers, and coordinating the event on-site. This hands-on experience will equip you with countless tools to begin your career.​
