Established in 2000 by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the LA County Arts Internship Program aims to provide undergraduates with meaningful experience working in nonprofit arts organizations, while assisting those organizations and developing future arts leaders. Students develop a deeper understanding of the work involved in nonprofit arts administration, better understand the role of the arts in communities and develop skills that can be put to use in their future careers.
The program is a sister program to The Getty Foundation’s Multicultural Undergraduate Internship Program, which provides similar internships in museums and visual arts organizations. The County gratefully acknowledges The Getty’s Foundation support of the educational program components of its Arts Internship Program.
NEW: The 2017 Arts Internship Program Final Report provides a summary and evaluation of the program from the perspective of both interns and supervisors.
