Program Overview

The San Francisco 49ers Internship is a part of our "Fans for Life" Program. It offers full time internships to individuals wishing to gain professional sports experience and make meaningful connections in the National Football League. Our internship program is built to develop future leadership talent that reflects our diverse community.

The internship program is a paid opportunity that allows participants to contribute to the organization's success while practicing the knowledge and theories learned in the classroom. While each intern will be working with a specific department, they will be given the opportunity to explore different areas within the organization through group networking events, training and 1:1 meetings.

Our interns also have a committed mentor, a supportive team and a real-world project to advance their skills and expand their understanding of a career in sports. Our goal is to create "fans for life" through every internship.
