Non-profit Project EverGreen is pleased to once again host the 2019 TOCA marketing communications intern. Internships are a great way for students to learn more about a particular career focus and gain hands-on professional experience to get them ready for their post-graduation careers.
Last year’s TOCA intern – Kayla Kingston – is now a junior at the University of Dayton and is interning in Washington D.C. this summer with the DC Flyers program. She is studying communications and is scheduled to graduate in May 2020.
The second-year marketing communications internship is funded through the TOCA Foundation by Den and Sandy Gardner (Gardner & Gardner Communications, New Prague, Minn.) and Dave Hansen (Partner/CEO of Swanson Russell, a marketing communications firm based in Lincoln, Neb.).
"Project EverGreen is thrilled to host the TOCA marketing intern," said Cindy Code of Project EverGreen. "Our intern will have the opportunity to contribute to all of our marketing communications efforts to promote our key initiatives and to grow our social media presence. We're grateful to Den and Sandy (Gardner) and Dave (Hansen) for making this internship available.”
Project EverGreen is a national non-profit that works to create healthy yards, parks and public green spaces in urban areas in need. It also created and manages the GreenCare for Troops and SnowCare for Troops programs that provide free lawn, landscape and snow removal services for families of actively deployed military members.
The summer internship will include opportunities to write stories and profiles for the Project EverGreen website, travel to various communities to work on park projects, work on various social media platforms, participate in committee meetings, attend a trade show and learn about working for a non-profit.
