Pentacle’s Internship Program seeks college students and recent graduates who are passionate about the arts, and interested in expanding their knowledge of the nonprofit arts sector. Selected interns are placed with a participating individual artist or nonprofit arts organization that shares their interests and goals.
Throughout the program, interns gain hands-on experience in nonprofit business practices and attend weekly Professional Development seminars led by Pentacle staff members and visiting arts professionals. Through these seminars, interns have an opportunity to build their administrative skills, learn from their peers, and network with industry leaders. The Internship Program will return Summer 2020. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
