You have passion for helping others. You want to make an impact on society in every way possible. You wake up every morning excited about the opportunity to change the world. 
Does this sound like you??? Then you belong at Midwest Sports Productions! 
Our team is a fun-loving, energized and dynamic group at the heart of Midwest Sports   Productions' world class events. Our goal is to drive excitement, win new customers, introduce existing customers to new and exciting experiences and make an impact on the communities in which we run our tournaments. 

 Each mission and execution is different and is catered to the audience at hand: be it providing the energy needed in the office, igniting the coolest youth sports event in town, visiting a club team just to say thanks for 'playing MSP,' a special guest of ours about to perform or supporting a team that's in need.  We make sure that every MSP family member we engage with gets a special interaction, giving them that little something extra when they need it most and creating a whole new level of energetic feel before, during and after MSP events.
Our Community Intern will become immersed in the heart of Midwest Sports Productions. From assisting with the organization and execution of tournaments with a fundraising/charity component to identifying opportunities for the entire team to volunteer in the community, you will be tasked with helping the company continue to make an impact in and around the game. 
In addition to Community projects, you may also have the opportunity to work in other services such as marketing, social media, business development initiatives, and game-day operations as needed.

This is an Unpaid Internship. Internship will span over a semester of college and involves about 600 hours (Can be flexible based on needs)
