As a small non-profit organization, the Abbe Museum offers a limited number of volunteer internships for high school and
For this coming summer season, the Abbe is excited to partner with Friends of Acadia and the University of Maine to offer two internships through the Wabanaki Youth Sciences Program (WaYS). This program works to inspire in Wabanaki youth a love of science which will continue into college and possibly translate into a career in the sciences. To do this the program blends both science and cultural understandings together into a unique curriculum. Contact museum educator Jen Heindel for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or (207) 288-3519. Learn more about the WaYS program >
Based on their academic training, interests and the availability of projects, interns work in one of the museum's departments:
• Exhibition Design
For many projects, a background in anthropology, archaeology, Native American art, history or photography is helpful, but not required.
All internships are volunteer, unpaid and are available on a
part-time basis. Positions vary according to departmental needs.
Housing is the responsibility of the intern.
