Description

Southeastern Guide Dogs, Tampa Bay Business Journal’s 2014 Nonprofit of the Year, has the distinction of being dually accredited by the two premier, global accreditation bodies: the International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF) and Assistance Dogs International (ADI). Founded in 1982 in Palmetto, Florida, the organization employs the latest in canine development and behavior research to create and nurture partnerships between visually impaired individuals and extraordinary guide dogs.

Southeastern Guide Dogs serves more than 400 graduates across the U.S. and continues to place more than 100 dogs each year into careers benefiting people with visual impairments, and veterans. The charity provides all of its services free of charge and receives no government funding.

The ideal media relations intern is a friendly, professional person with an aptitude for discovering a story worth telling. With guidance and solid direction from the staff Media Relations Associate, the intern will interview Southeastern Guide Dogs students, graduates, veterans, volunteers, or staff members to develop stories with potential interest to local, regional, or national media. With help from staff, the intern will craft written publicity pitches or press releases. This flexible internship may range from a minimum of 20 hours up to 40 hours.
