Interns generally focus on a specific goal or project within the Foundation. The project can either be assigned by the Director or suggested by the intern and/or the intern’s academic advisor. The point is to provide a project goal which can be completed during the length of the internship. Internships can last a semester or longer, depending on what is arranged with the intern, the Director and/or the academic advisor. These internships are generally 2-6 hours per week at a set time/day or can be flexible depending on how the internship is arranged. Interns from Atlanta colleges can often get school credit for their internships.
Internships are typically unpaid unless prior arrangements have been made through a funding program. Internships at the Amphibian Foundation typically center on Husbandry & Captive Management projects. For research based projects, please see our Conservation Research Bridge Program page, which details our mentored, 1-3 semester training program.
