Anytown Alabama Photography Internship 

The YWCA is currently accepting applications for a photographer/videographer internship with Anytown Alabama Teen Leadership Summit. Interns will hone their skills and gain experience as they document Anytown Alabama. This position is a perfect opportunity for photography and media students to gain on-the-job experience as independent photographer/videographers at a weeklong, residential, social justice-focused camp. We are seeking photographers/videographers with experience capturing and editing photos and videos who would like to build their portfolio with an in-depth, independent internship experience. Interns will spend their days taking photos and videos of campers and activities, editing captured work and networking with other students and non-profit professionals. If approved by your institution we are happy to work with to allow this opportunity to serve as course credit.
