Most internship positions at Rocketown for the Fall are filled — however, our Development Office is still in need of interns for all of the 2014-2015 school year!
Mission: Offering hope to the next generation through Christ’s love.
Vision: To be the place of peace, purpose and possibilities for youth.
History: Rocketown was founded in 1994 by Michael W. Smith. The first of its kind in the Southeast, Rocketown has grown into a regional outreach as well as a model for Christian-based relational outreach across the country. Following the tragedy of Columbine in 1999, Rocketown’s board was inspired to grow the scope of programming and move to a central location in downtown Nashville. The current facility features three stages for live entertainment, Middle Tennessee’s only indoor skatepark, The Hub snack bar, a recording studio, and photography, art and dance studios. More than 800 teens from across the Middle Tennessee region participate in programs each week and at an after-school program at McGavock High School.
Time Frame: Rocketown offers a year-round college internship program: fall semester (late August-December), spring semester (mid January- April), and summer (mid May-August).
