In addition to archives and exhibits, RCHS also provides valuable experience for those interested in exploring not-for-profit missions, education, events management, social media engagement and marketing, development, tourism, customer service, and operations management. 


Featured Opportunities

Our interns help us to make connections with our members and visitors in these spaces. RCHS strives to provide the opportunity for rewarding experiences. We expect you will be challenged and build valuable skills.
