Current Interns:

Allison Estremera is a member of Drew University’s Class of 2017, and holds a degree in English and Film and Media Studies. A lifelong love of the arts and a desire to learn about the world of non-profit organizations led her to join ARTS By The People’s internship program. While interning with ABTP, she will help with marketing and getting the word out about upcoming events.
