Internships can provide valuable experiences for institutions hosting students and the students who provide fresh ideas.

Some history organizations hesitate to provide internship opportunities because of the amount of time it takes to manage interns and to create meaningful projects that benefit all parties involved.

This leaflet outlines the components necessary for successful internship programs and how any organization can implement one. Topics cover creating meaningful tasks, proper compensation, marketing, recruitment, and selection of interns.
