The Braves, Atlanta’s professional baseball team, moved to the city from Boston via Milwaukee in the 1960s. Under the ownership of CNN-mogul Ted Turner, the team hit its stride in the 1990s, winning multiple World Series Championships. In 1991, the Braves became the first baseball team in history to win the ultimate prize (the Series) just one season after having the worst record in the league.
Founded by Hank Aaron and Rubye Lucas, the Atlanta Braves Career Initiative Program is designed for students interested in a behind-the-scenes professional sports career. Each summer, interns work closely with full-time employees in a variety of departments including player personnel, marketing, promotions and public relations. Depending on position, some interns will also have game-day responsibilities.
Open to college juniors and seniors, as well as grad students. Applicants must have a GPA of 2.8 or higher.
