Combine your desire to make a difference in your community with rewarding internships at Free Arts.

Due to COVID-19, our internship program is on hold until we can further assess how to provide a quality intern experience. Thank you for thinking of us, we hope to bring interns back to us soon!


Free Arts provides credited and unaccredited internship opportunities year round. Our interns expand their knowledge and experience under the direct training, support, and supervision of Free Arts staff, both in the office and in hands-on programs. Through department duties, teamwork, professional development, learning opportunities, and special projects, interns will have fun and accomplish their learning objectives in a creative and energetic environment.

We ask for a minimum of 10 to 25 hours per week, for 8 to 12 weeks, during normal business hours as well as outside of business hours, depending on your availability.
