SummerArts Internship Program

We are currently seeking interns ages 14+ for our SummerArts Camp who are passionate about the arts, enjoy working with children, and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty!

SummerArts interns will assist our teaching artists in the classroom, with organization and planning, and will participate in creative areas such as art, music, dance, theater, and chess. This is a wonderful opportunity to develop creativity and leadership skills. You may also receive community service credit and a letter of recommendation, as requested.
