The Kennedy Center

Changing Education Through the Arts Intern

Department description

The Kennedy Center's Changing Education Through the Arts (CETA) program provides professional learning for teachers in the arts and arts integration. We are looking for a self-motivated individual who is passionate about the role the arts can play in education. We value individuals who can work independently as well as collaboratively, can organize a large body of work, and are interested in learning about how a performing arts center can impact education.

Project description

National Arts Integration Conference: The Intern assists with logistical planning and coordination for a large-scale conference, which brings together 300 national and international educators for three days to Washington, DC. The intern is involved in organizing materials for sessions, creating schedules for participants, and developing the conference app. The intern assists with setting up sessions, registering participants, and providing customer service to presenters and participants at the conference. They also have opportunities to participate in the sessions designed to help teachers bring arts integration strategies into their classroom.

Event Planning: The intern gains experience in event preparation for events at partnership schools and at the Kennedy Center for the upcoming school year.

Demographic Research: The intern organizes and analyzes data related to educators participating in the CETA program used to report to funders.
