Day-to-day participation in the organization is augmented by special sessions in which senior staff share the inside view of their work at Americans for the Arts and their experiences as arts leaders. The open discussion format allows participants to learn directly from leaders, ask challenging questions, and address critical issues. The discussions are structured to provide both a functional overview of the organization and insight into a variety of leadership approaches.
Interns frequently arrange informational interviews with an individual staff member to gain a closer look into their role within the organization. Human Resources staff is available to review resumes and cover letters or to discuss career direction and advancement. It is also possible to arrange meetings with arts colleagues in the DC area according to participant interests.
Ongoing communication and evaluation is encouraged as a part of every experience at Americans for the Arts. Participants and supervisors also take a step back at key points during the term to assess time lines and measure progress. Intern coordinators are available throughout the term to address unexpected challenges, help bridge communication, or get over roadblocks. Exit interviews and final evaluations help us understand how we can improve the program.
Interns receive a one-year base membership to Americans for the Arts. Benefits include legislative alerts, access to listservs, copies of member publications, bookstore discounts, research assistance, and invitations to member events.
Special arrangements can be made to accommodate academic degree requirements. Staff are available to meet or correspond with academic advisors, review mandatory assignments, and complete evaluations. Please include detailed program requirements in your application.
Americans for the Arts interns are paid on an hourly basis. Americans for the Arts will also work with the applicant’s school or program to make the internship fit criteria for academic credit or field placement experience.
