TMC’s Internship Program is a unique and integral part of its programming. College students assist in managing the organization and delivering services to its teen clients. Interns have the opportunity to transfer classroom knowledge into a real life setting and gain essential 21st century workforce skills in areas of communication, collaboration, critical thinking, civic responsibility and leadership. Their contribution is key to the success of The Marble Collection and its programs.  Internships are unpaid, for college credit and may be performed in-person or online.
