Better Days 2020 Internship Opportunity


Better Days 2020 is looking for an intern to work with our passionate team. The year 2020 marks the

150th anniversary of Utah being the first place where women cast ballots in the modern nation (February

14, 1870). It also marks the centennial of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote

nationally. Better Days 2020 is committed to popularizing Utah women's history in creative and communal

ways in celebration of these anniversaries. We believe that we can use the past to make Utah a leader in

women's advancement again in the future.

This position is a one-semester, paid internship that will provide students an opportunity to hone their

research and writing skills while engaging in ways to popularize history for K-12 students and the general

public. Interns will work directly with the Historical Director and Director of Education, and other Better

Days 2020 team members, to assist in doing the following: 1) develop written and interactive content for

our educational website and print materials, 2)  source, file and get permissions for photos to be used in

our materials, and 3) depending on experience, present content to general audiences. Interns must have

a willingness to work for a scrappy non-profit, on a fast timeline, and in a tight-knit, collegial atmosphere.

They should have a foundational knowledge of Utah women's history, how it fits into the larger national

narrative, and be passionate about the subject.

Interns will work on a schedule (roughly 10 hours a week), but will be able to establish the times that work

for them.  This is an entirely flexible position with no fixed office space. Interns must be willing to work

from home or in a place she/he provides, and must be available to attend occasional meetings with other

team members or partners along the Wasatch Front (primarily in Salt Lake and Utah Valleys). Preference

will be given to Junior and Senior history majors.
