Marketing & Communications
You and your supervisor will have routine check-ins to discuss the work you’re doing and how you can use it to build your portfolio. We will work together to ensure you come away with experience and concrete skills to use in your career. Before it’s over, we’ll make sure you have a strong idea of how to list what you’ve gained in your résumé and discuss it with future employers.
We encourage you to ask questions and investigate your areas of interest. Ultimately, this internship is for your benefit; your work will help us and make an impact on our organization, but we hope most of all that you come away with skills, knowledge, and a clearer vision of the career you want to build for yourself.
You will be doing a fair amount of writing regardless of your interest area. We ask that MarComms interns take responsibility for at least one short-form (250 words or a strong infographic) article for our monthly newsletter each month of their internship and at least one social media post each week.
Otherwise, you propose your areas of interest.
Some areas to consider:
- Content Creation
- Social Media
- Email Marketing
- Marketing Strategy
- Content Writing
We invite proposals for any project you would consider valuable and educative.
Our ideal intern would be highly skilled in writing with some demonstrable skill in the larger area where they want experience. That doesn't necessarily mean work experience; we invite you to tell us about school projects, work done as a favor for family or friends, and work created just for fun. We encourage you to talk about your interest in your area of study, what you've learned and found exciting, and what you want to learn and experience moving forward.
Applications should address how your goals align with the goals of our organization and how you as a student could benefit by participating in our team. You are welcome to describe what you want to learn, skills you need help building, and other career-building needs we can help you fill.
For MarComms internships, a roughly 500-word writing sample is required to be included in your application. This internship will require regular formal and informal writing.

About Meals on Wheels South Texas
Meals on Wheels South Texas is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that supports independent living for seniors by providing services for homebound seniors (including transportation, pet assistance, a Friendly Callers program, and library materials delivery) and congregate meals and activities at its Connection Café on Murray Street.
Meals on Wheels South Texas is the largest Title III meal provider in the 7-county region serviced by the Golden Crescent Area Agency on Aging. Since its founding in 1979 as the Victoria County Senior Citizens Association, MOWSTx has worked to enable seniors to age in place and eliminate food insecurity and other obstacles that diminish seniors’ quality of life.
Consistent with its duty to provide and maintain a workplace that is free of recognized hazards and to safeguard the health and well-being of employees and their families, our customers, visitors, and others who spend time in our facilities, Meals on Wheels Victoria requires all new hires, as a condition of their employment, to establish that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or obtain an approved medical or religious exemption as an accommodation, prior to their start date.
For purposes of this policy, an individual is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the second dose of a two-dose vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) or one dose of a single-dose vaccination (Janssen). Previous history of COVID-19 from which the individual recovered more than 90 days earlier or a previous positive antibody test for COVID-19 do not waive this requirement for vaccination.
