Want to get involved? Here are a few ways…

Looking for an Internship?

Interns will assist with all aspects of research, planning, and development for the Creative Reuse Center. Responsibilities will include researching funding opportunities, contributing to long-term business plan, and helping design and execute lessons and crafts for workshops and events featuring recycled materials. This is an excellent opportunity for students to engage with the Richmond creative community, bolster their resume, gain understanding of non-profit management, and develop skills in public relations, as well as pedagogical practice.

HOW IT WILL WORK:

Interns must commit to at least 8 hours per week for the entire semester. All hours must be logged at Stuff Redux (1605 Rhoadmiller St). Usually Intern hours will be working during store hours 11-5 Friday and Saturday but there will be times when hours will be worked outside of those. An exact schedule will be determined once the intern has been selected.

Your internship with Stuff Redux may be eligible to count toward service learning hours. Please Contact Dr. Wilson-McKay or the professor for your class requiring service hours to discuss this possibility.

Please email resume and cover letter to Erika Ogier at StuffReduxRVA@gmail.com
