YWCA Tulsa is seeking undergraduate or graduate student applicants for one (1) spring internship in our Communications & Development department, which oversees all external and internal communications, media relations, marketing, special events, planned giving, and grants. Intern will work 10-40 hours per week, based on availability, at YWCA Tulsa’s Bailey House in downtown Tulsa (15th and Denver). The internship will begin on or near Monday, January 11, and will run through the spring semester.
This internship will involve heavy content development for a variety of mediums to include web, social media, print, television, internal publications and more.

Applicants should have completed at least four semesters of course work. The internship will primarily be office-based but could include occasional attendance at offsite meetings in Tulsa.
