School and Community Programs
Events and Communications

The School and Community Programs department's mission is to support schools, communities, and their stakeholders locally and throughout the nation in order to build their capacity to develop and sustain robust arts education programs. These programs promote quality professional learning in the arts for educators, as well as equity and access to arts education for students. The programs support learning in, through, and about the arts as an integral component of a comprehensive education.

The intern will gain hands-on experience by assisting with event logistics, developing event materials, and participating on-site at events. They will develop a working knowledge of best practices, trends, and challenges in the arts education field.

Communications and Social Media
