Educational Programs Internship:

Educational Program Interns support the Dunes Center’s goal of providing high-quality and engaging programming to children on the Central Coast. This part-time service is a mutually beneficial partnership that will enable the Dunes Center to engage local residents and children with educational opportunities and activities while the intern gains experiences that can be used for college or graduate school admissions, work experience, and personal fulfillment. Generally, this position requires an interest in science education, experience working with children, and a willingness to learn.

There is also a temporary paid internship available, February – April
