WORKSHOP is more than your typical internship program. It’s a real-world training and learning experience for college students preparing for a future in marketing communications. And the work you create with a charity or cause-based organization is designed to uplift lives.

We believe that the work any of us does to make another person’s life better is the most rewarding.
2021 Fall Semester WORKSHOP
Is currently in session. Please check back for information on our Spring Semester WORKSHOP.

APPLICATION: apply by Sept. 29 for Fall 2021
semester WORKSHOP.

SELECTION: Candidate review, selection and notification occurs approximately two weeks after semesters begin. 

START AND END DATES: The Workshop internship roughly correlates with the academic semester.
Internship schedules will vary depending on the schedules of the team members. However, we expect participants to be available for at least one all-staff meeting per week (30 minutes) and one Workshop team meeting (30-60 minutes) per week. 


During the fall and spring semesters, Hailey Sault hires senior level college student interns from the fields of design, advertising, communications, marketing and digitally-focused degrees. During the semester, interns work together as a team for a client—typically in the roles of an account manager, writer, art director and digital specialist—to create a strategy and deliverables that the client can use to further its mission. At the end of the semester, the students have strong work samples to add to their portfolios and the client has tools they can use to meet their goals.


Why do we pair our Workshop teams with a cause-related organization? We believe that the work any of us does to make another person’s life better is the most rewarding kind. Scroll down for some examples of past partnerships. If you’re a nonprofit interested in working with our teams, contact us to learn more.
