MIAMI CHILDREN’S MUSEUM RECEIVES GRANT FROM THE MIAMI BAYSIDE FOUNDATION TO SUPPORT YOUTH INTERNSHIPS
Miami, FL (April 24, 2018) – Miami Children’s Museum has received a prestigious grant from the Miami Bayside Foundation to support its summer internship program. This grant will provide a paid internship for five minority youth from the City of Miami. Interns will be paid for 240 hours of service, over 10 weeks, including training and will receive ongoing assessment and coaching to help them develop specific skills.
Miami Children’s Museum’s dynamic internship program provides interns with real-world experience and the opportunity to work directly with the team and learn about the operations of a world-class nonprofit organization. Interns will work alongside our Museum Educators allowing them to build leadership skills and understand how the Museum works from the ground up. Additionally, interns will have the opportunity to engage our youngest guests in art, science, health and wellness activities as well as learn about our exhibits, programs, camps and events within the Museum and in the community.

With an over 30-year history of operating a Volunteer & Intern Program, the Museum shares in our commitment toward advancing economic development in the City of Miami “said Kathleen Murphy, Executive Director for the Miami Bayside Foundation.
