College undergraduates in Los Angeles County are eligible for the internships. Interns are paid $350 per week for ten weeks and take part in educational and arts networking activities. Through the program, interns gain a deeper understanding of the work involved in nonprofit arts administration and the role of the arts in a community, and develop business skills that can be put to use in their future careers.
General information on the program is available on the Arts Commission’s web site at www.lacountyarts.org/internship.html. Descriptions of and contacts for the 132 internship positions are also posted on the Arts Commission’s web site at http://lacountyarts.org/internship_positions0306.pdf. Interested undergraduates should apply directly to the organization offering the internship, not the Arts Commission.
