The goal of the internship program at Glenstone is to cultivate the next generation of museum professionals by exposing interns to various professional pathways in the museum world. In collaboration with their department, interns can expect to gain professional experience supporting specific departmental and museum-wide initiatives and projects. Interns are encouraged to connect with fellow team members throughout the organization to gain knowledge and build lasting relationships. 

“It’s okay if things don’t turn out exactly the way you expect... and as I grew throughout my time at Wellesley, I discovered that I also wanted to gain experience in more people-oriented clinical roles.”
