USA Baseball Internship Program
For more than 15 years, USA Baseball has provided internship opportunities for current college students and recent college graduates from across the country. Over the past few years, interns have come to USA Baseball from as far away as Stanford University and the University of Miami, and as close as North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. USA Baseball internships offer a wide range of real-world experience and the opportunity to develop lifelong professional relationships across both professional and amateur sports.
Each intern works closely with a full-time staff member to further their skills necessary to work both in sports and for a nonprofit organization. Recent USA Baseball interns have gone on to accept full-time positions with the Olympic family and in collegiate and professional sports. Other interns have gone back to school for post-graduate work, several have received their law degree and 19 are now full-time USA Baseball staff members.
