Greater Cleveland Film Commission

One of the core pillars of GCFC’s mission is workforce development. To that end, we offer programs that help current and aspiring production professionals keep up with industry best practices from industry experts, which ensures that they are ready to handle any task that a visiting production might require. We also work with local educators to help students who have a desire to enter a career in media production gain exposure to the industry.

One way that we do that is by hosting interns in our GCFC office. Throughout the year, several opportunities are available to students interested in the media production industry to come work with us and learn not only about the industry, but also about non-profit organizations and day to day office life. We also host students for limited time shadowing and senior projects, which can last anywhere from one day to one week.

Those looking for limited time shadowing or senior project opportunities may contact Ashley Alexandersen at

Habitat for Humanity Internship

Intern at Habitat

Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity is a growing, multi-faceted organization that serves families in need of decent affordable housing within Cuyahoga County. We offer various internship opportunities to college/university, trade school, or graduate school students. Internships are offered on a rolling or semester basis according to departmental or organizational needs.

Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity internships allow students to volunteer in a broad range of capacities, working with staff members to assist in tasks ranging from administrative work to the creation of new programs and systems. In order to distinguish an internship from volunteering, we are looking for a 150 hour commitment over the course of approximately 15 weeks that results in a completed project or objective.

Our internships are excellent opportunities for students to gain practical real-world work experience and learn new skills while completing a degree or certificate program. Students are also able to use internships for course-work credit with the approval of their institution. Qualifications vary by internship, and some positions may require specific training or availability. Interns are considered as integral members of the Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity family.

Interested candidates must be 18 years or older to apply for any internships.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume, and type of internship you are applying for to:
