The Arts Commission provides grants to nonprofit performing, presenting, and literary organizations to host college students for 400 hours of paid work between June and August. The earliest that interns can start their 2019 internships is Saturday, June 1, and the latest is Monday, June 17. Internships end no later than Sunday, August 25.
Each participating host organization determines the exact start date and end date of the internship, as well as the work schedule. In addition to working at their host organizations, students participate in education events and peer group activities coordinated by the Arts Commission.
In the summer of 2019, approximately 178 positions will be available for students throughout LA County. A list of available positions will be posted in March 2019. In the meantime, students are encouraged to review the list of 2018 positions to get a sense of the range of positions typically available.
For more information about past interns' experiences, you can also read our 2018 Arts Internship Program Final Report, which includes a summary and evaluation from the perspectives of both interns and supervisors.
