Career Development Internships

Our career developing internships attract students from different universities throughout the country. Our interns benefit from career enhancing experiences and exposure to many aspects of running a nonprofit organization.

We offer a broad range of opportunities geared toward the student’s area of interest. Past internships have included graphic design, education and social work, business administration, nonprofit management, art administration, film and media production, creative writing, grant writing, and stage production.

If you are interested in interning with ARTS By The People, please email
