Program Interns

The Program internships provide a unique opportunity to gain practical experience at a non-profit by helping to plan, market and produce a wide range of events! The interns work directly with the Program staff on a variety of projects, including background research on upcoming speakers, attending and assisting in the production of events, marketing programs through outreach and social media, and other duties such as drafting speaker invitations and creating Club materials.

We are seeking multiple Program Interns who will have similar tasks (listed above) but focus on different programming projects — all are based in our San Francisco office:

  • Featured Programming Intern: Working with the Program staff on all Featured San Francisco programs.
  • East Bay Programming Intern: Working with the program coordinator on one or two East Bay programs per month while also helping with Featured San Francisco events.
  • California Book Awards Intern: Working with the program producer on producing the annual California Book Awards in June. The California Book Awards Intern will also help with select Featured San Francisco programs. Click here for more info on CA Book Awards.

To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to Elisabeth Mart at emart [at] commonwealthclub [dot] org and specify which Program internship you are interested in.
