Right now at Athena Project we have Internships open in all these inspiring areas, for talented high school and college creatives!

I had the opportunity to work as a Communications Intern with Athena Project in Fall 2015 while I was a student at the University of Denver. The opportunity to work with this enthusiastic group of women was an invaluable one for me both personally and professionally, and the skills and connections I developed with Athena led right to a job out of school! The internship gave me the chance to push and strengthen myself with the support of like-minded women, and further the mission of a great organization at the same time.
