The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum Foundation preserves and promotes the legacy of President John F. Kennedy, his family and their deep connection to Cape Cod. It is in the heart of downtown Hyannis at 397 Main Street. A year-round organization, the museum is open seasonally and has attracted tens of thousands of visitors annually with professionally curated exhibits and a new center for community engagement designed for dynamic cultural and educational programs for all audiences and age groups.
An Intern would experience and actively participate in daily operations at the height of the season for the museum. Interaction with members of the museum’s leadership would include helping to design new activities and events that take place in the museum or by digital means. The individual would have a project focus on developing new adult leadership program content and increasing the museum’s reach via digital programs and channels. Projects could also include collection management cataloging and storage improvement processes.
The experience will provide a deepened understanding of the “behind the scenes” work in a vibrant and fast-paced nonprofit setting and afford the opportunity for a student to develop skills in project management, operations, museum exhibit preparation, research, presidential history and the study of presidential leadership.
