Internship Opportunities

The Virginia Holocaust Museum is committed to providing meaningful internship experiences to qualified applicants in various fields. Unlike some internship experiences, we are dedicated to mentoring our interns in working on actual projects that will have tangible results and provide professional training for the job market.

If you are interested in an Internship Opportunity, please send an email to our Director of Education, Megan Ferenczy.
