Students with an interest in California and local history will find this experience rewarding. The internship consists of work such as updating the HRL, visiting and photographing historical sites, researching documents, and updating ownership and condition reports. Historical Society staff, under the guidance of academic instructors, supervises all work. Potential academic credit, but no compensation, is available at this time. Interns must provide their own transportation.
Students interested in interning in East County (Brentwood, Byron, Knightsen, Oakley and Bethel Island) are invited to e-mail Carol Jensen at email@example.com. Those interested in Mid County (Antioch, Pittsburg and Clayton) are invited to e-mail Mellissa Jacobsen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
