We aim to provide college students with valuable mentorship and hands-on experience, bridging the gap between the classroom and the workplace. Interns play an integral part in the inner workings of the Weinberg, supporting the administrative staff in their daily activities. Interns will gain insight into the world of nonprofit arts administration, and will build practical skills that are broadly applicable to business, marketing, and communications as a whole. Please note that we do not offer internships backstage, in programming, or in the technical department.

This is an internship with flexible scheduling (10-20 hours/week) from May through August. Application deadline is April 23.



This is an unpaid internship. However, all interns will receive access to complimentary tickets to attend Weinberg shows, based on availability. Students are encouraged to check with their college about using the internship for academic credit.
