Who We Are
DC Fray is DC’s largest lifestyle community with nearly 55,000 annual participants in 2017. Our mission is to Make Fun Possible!
To accomplish that mission we organize social sport leagues, special events, and increasingly promote news and information that helps our members have fun! From Kickball leagues to tubing trips and bar crawls to new year’s eve parties, DC Fray holds a unique place in the fabric of the city. With portions of our league dating back to 2004 we have over a decade of experience creating incredible experiences for our members and strong relationships with our partners.
To accomplish all we do we have pulled together an amazing team of individuals with an eclectic background in marketing, sports management, community development, business administration, and event planning. Interning at DC Fray will give you the opportunity to have direct hands on experience and mentorship in a way that other internships just aren’t able to provide.
We look forward to you joining our team!
The Internship Program
Most students will complete a 300-400 hour internship to satisfy graduation requirements. This equates to 40 hours per week for 7-10 weeks. Some students will need to stay longer and some will have shorter practicum requirements with less time commitment. These cases will be addressed individually but typically interns must be available for a minimum of 20 hours per week for a minimum of 6 weeks to be considered for placement. Interns are hosted year round with flexible schedules!
We pay $150/month stipend to all interns, to help cover their transportation costs related to the position, for the duration of their internship.
Students have three specific areas of specialization to select from: Graphic Design, Content Marketing, and Data Analysis.
Interns can also expect that there were be several areas of the business that each position will get exposed to, but will not be the focus of their internship. On top of their daily activities and exposure, they will be given a "master" project in their area of interest.
Students will work alongside their department Manager developing marketing and branding strategies, allocating marketing dollars for different media outlets, developing ads, creating social media promotions, doing research and more.
We are seeking an intern with experience in page layout design, web design, and flyer/poster/invitation designs. Interns will work closely with the Creative Team to generate ideas for print and digital for multiple markets. In addition to this, interns will collect, maintain, and archive advertisements, images, photos, and artwork for print and web.
