Summer’s right around the corner and internships are a great way for college students to gain experience and network during those months off. If interested, they should check out the first round of positions available for the LA County 2921 Arts Internship program.
The program is open to currently enrolled undergraduate (2 or 4-year) and community college students who reside or attend college in Los Angeles County. Recent graduates may apply as long as they have completed their degree between May 1 – December 1, 2021.
Students will be paid $6,000 ($15/hr) for the 400-hour long internship. They will be paid by the organizations that hired them.
Because of COVID-19, they’ve made some changes to the program:
- Extended internship window: The program has been extended from a “summer” program typically held from June through August to more of a year-round format. Interns will be able to work from May 31, 2021, through March 1, 2022.
- Internships will be posted on a rolling basis: Interns should check the website at the beginning of each month starting on April 1 through August 2 as new positions will be posted.
- More flexible work parameters: Grantee organizations may elect to have interns work as few as 15 hours a week, and interns may be able to work from home for a portion of their hours.
- Opportunities to connect! Interns will not be working in isolation and will be able to attend monthly virtual events to meet leaders in the field of arts and culture, network with one another, experience arts and culture, and more.
Students will apply directly to the host organizations via the information found on the website.
