As the Patrons of the Arts continues to grow, so does our online presence.

In addition to monitoring social media, he/she would write blog posts to be featured on the Patrons of the Arts website, create the monthly e-Newsletter, edit and publish the biannual newsletter, and produce short videos to give a behind the scenes look at the museums and restoration projects. The longevity and commitment of this position as opposed to the brief duration of our volunteer internship program, affords an essential level of continuity and offers the intern a comprehensive work and learning experience.Working in the Patrons of the Arts Rome headquarters, the intern would have access to exclusive content within the museums. As a liaison between the Vatican headquarters and the world at large, this internship offers an unparalleled journey through the World Wide Web. The ideal candidate for this position is a motivated individual who has experience in online communications and a passion for art and history. Although the content is mainly driven in English, experience with written Italian would be a bonus.
This is an incredibly unique experience for a young professional who wants to spread a spiritual message and good works of the Patrons of the Arts. In the past year, the Patron of the Arts Facebook community has grown by 600%. We are projected to grossly exceed that number in the next year and many years to come.
