TEDxAsburyPark: PASSION is our 6th event, and we’ve learned a great deal! While we’re all volunteers, we are a professional, dedicated team and take our jobs seriously. And we also take having fun together seriously.
Producing an event on the scale and of the quality of TEDxAsburyPark requires several thousand hours of volunteer effort from a team of 50+ people. Everyone has a specific, defined role (we’re big on responsibility). And of course, our fantastic volunteers also pitch in where and how they can if help is needed.
Interns are asked to work approximately five hours each week depending on their availability and course of study. The program allows qualified students to gain hands-on experience working with creative professionals and receive credit (150 hours of work for 3 credits). Interns are assigned to an experienced mentor manager and receive a written evaluation; successful interns receive recommendations and referrals.
If you have the drive, time and energy to commit to our internship program, we want to hear from you! Fill out the Internship Application and let us know how you can help. The more specific you can be, the better.
