YES! Magazine provides internships for qualified individuals in the editorial departments (both print and online), the education department, and the media and outreach department. Each internship offers a valuable work experience in a supportive and motivating work environment.
Here is our current crop of amazing interns:
Morgan Wright, Education Outreach
Morgan was born in British Columbia and spent her early childhood at WindSong Cohousing until moving to Seattle in 2000. After graduating in June from the Community, Environment, and Planning program at the University of Washington, Morgan spent the summer and fall traveling (a Birthright trip to Israel, and a 1,000 mile bicycle ride from Seattle to Yellowstone!) and working with kids of all ages, from toddlers to high school students. She is passionate about education, ecology, and community, and feels so lucky to find herself at YES! where she is surrounded by aware, forward-thinking people who are working towards social change. Besides YES!, Morgan also works with toddlers at the Peacock Family Center here on Bainbridge Island. In her free time, Morgan loves to bike, cook, make art, and spend time with family and friends in Seattle.
Miles Schneiderman, Print Editorial
Originally hailing from Tucson, Arizona, Miles is irrationally excited about experiencing the cold, rain and darkness of the Pacific Northwest. After more than seven years working with gifted children in Tucson, he moved to Flagstaff in 2011 and, three years later, earned a bachelor's degree in journalism and political science from Northern Arizona University. An avid reader of YES!, Miles jumped at the chance to serve as a print editorial intern for a magazine he has long respected and loved. He hopes to gain experience working in the publishing world while refining his skills in political and environmental writing. Miles is passionate about social justice, environmental action, media reform and being a feminist ally. Less critically, he is also passionate about podcasting and radio announcing, his beat-up but fully-functional bicycle, fantasy and science fiction novels, Dutch symphonic metal, the Chicago Bears and professional wrestling.
Araz Hachadourian, Online Reporting
Araz hails from Pasadena, California and has recently given up trying to convince people that it’s actually part of Los Angeles. Dogs, coffee, and singing loud enough to scare the neighbors are some of her favorite past times. She’s coming off the heels of an internship with New York Public Radio and currently finishing up a Master’s in Philosophy from San Francisco State University.
Jen Luxton, Online Design
Jennifer Luxton is a journalist by college major, illustrator by minor, graphic designer by profession and amatuer taxidermist by moonlight. She hails from the sunny San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles and is still adjusting to all the foliage on Bainbridge. Aside from freelancing for a pin-up studio, she has an unhealthy obsession with anime, post-apocalyptic western-sci-fi comic books, loose-leaf tea and natural history. She holds several state and national college media awards for her design work, and graduated at the top of her journalism class from California State University, Northridge. Now that she has experienced the Pacific Northwest, plans for going back to LA are but a distant memory.
