  • volunteer shifts that run approximately 3-5 hours
  • an enriching experience while being treated with courtesy and respect
  • a behind-the-scenes look at how a nonprofit organization is run
  • to work with a team of professionals that enjoy supporting the arts as much as you do
  • to make new friends and connections
  • to have fun while engaging in hard, meaningful work

Internships 

The Internship Program at Artist Trust offers part-time (12-20 hours a week), six-month internships twice a year. It is best suited for aspiring arts administrators seeking to gain entry-level experience in the nonprofit and arts and culture sector. Applicants need not be enrolled in or a graduate of a college degree program. Current students may be eligible to earn academic credit through their individual institutions. All internships are unpaid, but a $1,000 stipend (unless contracted through a university as a work study student) will be awarded to the intern after successful completion of the six-month internship.

No internships open at this time. Please check back later.
