We give children in hospitals, children's homes and hospice organizations the opportunity to write/illustrate stories about anything they want. We distribute those stories to songwriters who turn them into songs for the kids and their families. We have over 4000 songwriters who participate in our program and work with approximately 150 organizations serving children in need all over the world. Over the past 8 years, we have been on The Today Show, People Magazine, Huffington Post and New York Times.
All our Internships are REMOTE. We work closely with our interns utilizing online tools like Google Docs, Facetime, Toggl Time Management and others. All of us at Sing Me a Story were interns at one point in our careers. We truly value the internship experience and do everything we can to make it a mutually beneficial experience for all those involved.

June 2020 - August 2020
“The staff of Sing Me a Story really values their interns, and this was clear to me from the first second I joined the team; they immediately began to treat us with respect, responsiveness, and kindness. The directors were so attentive to the desires of the interns, taking into account what aspects of the organization were appealing to us and encouraging us to be vocal about this as they designated responsibilities. The internship had a very nice balance between structured (I never felt like I didn't know what to do), and independent (everything was at my own pace and I never felt like I was doing busywork).”
Social Media Manager and Artist Coordinator
“I have been with the Sing Me a Story foundation for over a year. I started as an artist coordinator, then I became the social media manager and now I am changing positions again. This internship helped me develop skills such as reaching out to multiple artists and coordinating information among multiple parties. I was able to enhance my social media skills and graphic design skills by creating content for SMAS's Social media. If you enjoy learning about multiple roles in an organization this is the internship for you! Everyone is very helpful and will help you understand what role they play in the organization. The mission of the organization is prominent in every project, so everyone stays on the same page. There are constantly new ideas and opportunities to take advantage of, you just have to ask. ”
