In an effort to expand opportunities for teenagers and build stronger volunteer communities in Fairfield County, the Volunteer Squareinternship provides training and experience with digital marketing, social media, website maintenance, and community relations for high school school students across Connecticut.
Since the program began in the fall of 2016, we've welcomed 39 interns from 17 towns. As volunteer ambassadors in their schools, area towns, and their peer groups, the high school interns are crucial to our organization and without their project coordination and volunteer recruitment, we would not be able to make such a large impact in Connecticut communities.
Interns create content and manage the Town Pages on our website. These pages are a way for the interns to be the voice of their community. They include information about upcoming events, stories and pictures from past events to encourage peer groups and family members to get involved.
