The Florence Y'alls are now accepting applications for 2020 summer interns. Internships are designed for Sports Management, Event Planning, Sports Business, Business Culinary and Finance students to gain real world experience and college credit.
"Interning for the Florence Freedom was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. Florence was the perfect place for me to “get my feet wet” in the sports industry and learn hands on from a super friendly and helpful staff. Not only are you going to learn skills helpful in the sports industry you will also join the Freedom family, during my time in Florence I made many great connections and friendships that I still have today."
- Trevor O’Neil, Summer Intern Class of 2017, Current Ticket Account Executive with the Cleveland Browns
Interning at the Freedom is an eye opening experience. You can dip your toe into so many different aspects of the sports world. You will learn more than your ever thought. It made me realize that I did want to work in sports. It made me excited for the future.
- Hannah Siefert, Summer Intern Class of 2018, Current Director of Fan Communications with the Florence Freedom.
