Internships & Volunteering
Poets House depends on the help of volunteers and interns for a variety of staffing needs, including shelving and library maintenance, reference questions, book processing, editing, proofreading and correspondence.
Volunteers work a minimum of four hours per week; interns between eight and twenty hours. Assigned responsibilities depend on prior experience, skills and commitment.
If you are interested in volunteering, please send your resume to the attention of Mike Romanos,
firstname.lastname@example.org, with a cover letter stating your area of interest and the hours you are available to work.
