Do you want to work at GOOD?
This past summer a former KCAI grad, Alicia Rosas, worked at GOOD magazine as a design apprentice (a fancy name for internship). She applied in May and the internship ran June – August.
It was a very hands on experience in which she worked directly with developers and had full ownership over design responsibilities (incl. research, protoyping, wireframing, look/feel and brand specifications) in the creation of GOOD's mobile site.
Congrats to Alicia, because after the apprenticeship was over they offered her a full-time gig as UI designer and that's where she currently works.
“if any KCAI students are interested in flying out to LA for a summer, I highly recommend it! The group I worked with was GOOD's first shot at the apprenticeship program, but they really liked it and seem to be on the look out to do it again in the future.... In case you were curious, everyone here really liked and responded to my degree project as well as the project we did for MX--so I'm really thankful for all the work we put into those semester long projects.”

The Kansas City Chalk and Walk Festival, a not for profit, 501C3, is looking for an intern to help us with minor changes to our web site, www.kcchalkandwalk.org.
Changes would be as follows: updating of photographs, festival date change for 2012, uploading volunteer, sponsor, artist forms, and insert music (if possible).
This is a non-paid internship, however, a hefty letter of recommendation for the student’s portfolio will be one of the perks. (and the thought that he/she helped an organization whose mission is to give back to the community via free arts programs).

from tanesh goshon at phoenix: "Phoenix Family Housing empowers people living in low-income housing communities with the on-site support they need to gain stability and achieve self-sufficiency.
"We would like a student who has experience in Graphic Design working with InDesign to become a possible volunteer for our organization. Here at Phoenix Family Housing we pride ourselves on treating our volunteers as staff members and having them work as a integral part of the team to help accomplish the mission.
"This would be a virtual opportunity and the volunteer would only need to meet with staff members once a month to design our monthly newsletter, help design marketing material and other duties as assigned. This is an unpaid position, however we will greatly appreciate the time and effort that will be put into this project."
