Spondulics Technical Education Program (STEP) Spring Internship is a newly developed, paid, five-week experience beginning February 28th, 2022 and ending March 31st, 2022.
STEP is designed to teach Orange and Seminole County Public School students the foundation to various technological skillsets required for the operations and content creation necessary for FPP’s internationally-viewed, financial focused, streaming platform: Spondulics.org.
This opportunity will bring the essentials of TV Production, website design, content creation, and professional development into a single experience. Leaving STEP, all interns will have created their own form of virtual, financially-focused content to be shared via a LIVE broadcast event and continuously as archived content on Spondulics.org.
FPP is currently offering this experience to students in Orange and Seminole County, FL who otherwise would not have the capability to explore such hands-on or in-depth technological work experiences prior to college or career exploration.
A total of 6 interns will be invited to participate in Spring 2022 from Orange County Public Schools.
If you are interested in joining this experience, please send your resume to Bill@FPPCoalition.org.
