Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA) has launched it’s first ever Business/Communications Internship Program. Under the supervision of Director of Marketing, Lane Taylor, the Business Internship program has been designed to aid college students in achieving business credit and real life business experience as they prepare to enter the workforce.
“Shepherds Hill Academy’s internship opportunity uniquely combines a ministry/nonprofit opportunity with hands on business experience,” Taylor said. “We wanted to offer students a program where they can really get an idea of what a nonprofit business environment is like.”
The internship program offers experience in areas such as: content writing, website maintenance, donor relationship and fundraising, graphic design, marketing strategy, social media marketing, and more. “There are so many opportunities for students to really build their resume and learn valuable skills to take with them after the internship term is over. Plus they get to work for a ministry right here in Stephens and Franklin county (Georgia)!” said Taylor.
Shepherds Hill Academy welcomed their first intern in July, 2017 from Toccoa Falls College, in Toccoa Falls, GA. Kellie Whiten joined the Marketing team as a Donor Relations and Content Development intern.
“I have heard so much about SHA just from being a part of the community for the past few years,” stated Whiten. She proceeded to say, “After one of my professors suggested SHA’s marketing department as an internship, I decided to check it out! My favorite part about interning with SHA is performing hands-on activities that further my education while bettering the lives of children all over the nation.”
For those who are no longer college students, Shepherds Hill Academy also offers a number of volunteer opportunities. Interested candidates are asked to email Lane Taylor at Shepherds Hill Academy. Her email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Offering hope and healing to families in crisis, Shepherds Hill Academy is a nonprofit 501(c)3 located in Martin, GA offering Residential Therapeutic care to troubled teenagers across the United States.
