Meet the Spring 2017 Interns!


It is our pleasure to welcome a new intern cohort to Kindling Group this spring! Per usual we’ve got a strong crew, bringing experience in video, digital organizing, and television to the table — as well as some a cappella chops, a pet cat, and a ukelele. Our interns will work on both Kindling Group engagement campaigns and post-production, and we can't wait to dive in.

Meet the interns!
