Going Virtual: TBG’s 2020 Internship Program

Bill Odle

Unprecedented uncertainty brought on by COVID-19, has led us to transition our summer internships to a virtual environment. This move supports our commitment to connecting with students and future leaders of our profession and recognizes the critical nature of continued learning – despite the circumstances we are all currently facing.

“We believe the value of the virtual internship experience, will inspire students to continue in the profession and be part of the many meaningful contributions that our profession has yet to still make in the world. We believe our duty in the profession is to do what we can to grow our future leaders,” said Bill Odle, TBG President.

This virtual internship experience will introduce the students to the profession, expand related skills and knowledge through one-on-one mentorship, and provide group learning opportunities and skill building in a virtual studio setting. The program will span 9-weeks and be organized in two parts:

    _ Lecture Series (an engaging series of presentations led by TBG experts and organized around the creative process)
    _ Studio Cohort (content will follow along with the lecture series, allowing for demonstration through project experience)

We are so excited to host this year’s intern class – even if their experience might look a little different. Please join us in welcoming this great group of interns to TBG:
