NCTV17 is committed to educating the next generation of broadcast professionals. As part of that commitment, summer internships are offered to college students who attended a D203 or D204 high school or are currently enrolled at North Central College.

All interns gain hands-on experience in a fun, youthful work environment. The station offers internships in News, Sports, and Production Services.

Previous NCTV17 interns have gone on to pursue careers in television production and broadcast journalism, while others have pursued communication roles at school districts, local and state government, as well as corporations.

2019 summer internship applications are now closed.

Community Crew

Community television lives up to its promise only if the community gets involved. The idea of Community Crew allows residents to work side-by-side with NCTV17’s professional crew to create programming that directly reflects the community in which they live. Through its Community Crew, NCTV17 provides an opportunity for volunteers to learn a new skill while helping their local, nonprofit cable station showcase the many wonderful events and activities taking place throughout the Naperville area.

a) Must be 18 years or older
b) Must reside within the attendance boundaries of Naperville Community Unit School District 203 or Indian Prairie School District 204 or work within the City of Naperville. North Central College students currently enrolled at the college are also eligible
c) Must be able to lift 20 pounds, stand for two hours, and be comfortable operating equipment outdoors in both hot and cold temperatures
d) Must be comfortable operating technology
e) All participants must pay an annual membership fee of $25/year to pay for training and a Crew shirt
