To the distinguished peers and populace of Æthelmearc,

At Pennsic War 49 this year, discussions and hours of planning were underway for a new program to be featured at Pennsic War 50. Next year, staff of Pennsic War 50 will help to bring the new generation into our society by fully immersing them into the experience of running a large-scale event such as the annual Pennsic War.

The new Young Adult Internship Program will be running its pilot program at Pennsic 50 and are looking for applicants from the realm to be considered for three internship positions. In this program, interns will be taken through the Mayor’s Office, Land Department or Department of Cultural Affairs branches of the Pennsic War and will be taught both basics and some details of that position. The intention of the program is to provide opportunities for young adults who may be looking to further their knowledge and find their path in the SCA.

The program coordinator and advisors are asking the peers of the realm to take some time and reach out to any young adults who they feel may be interested in taking an internship at Pennsic War 50. We are asking that young adults be in the age range of 18-24 years of age to ensure that we are ushering in the new generation of the SCA into the inner workings of our society.

For applicants to apply, we are asking that a resume with information about any service or work done in the SCA be submitted with a letter of intent specifying the position they are requesting and references for work done with in the kingdom. All SCA resumes can be sent to Internship@pennsicwar.org. Thank you for your consideration and with your help to bring the new generation into the fold of our society.

With gratitude,
Nasira al-Safiya Hatun bint Ivaz
Young Adult Internship Program Coordinator
