PROGRAM OVERVIEW
In 2000, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors established the Arts Internship Program to provide internships for nonprofit performing, presenting, literary and municipal arts organizations. This program is a companion program to the Getty Multicultural Internship Program, which provides internships to museums and visual arts organizations.

The purpose of the County’s program is to provide undergraduate students with meaningful on-the-job training and experience working in nonprofit arts organizations, while assisting arts organizations and developing future arts leaders. Through this program, students develop a deeper understanding of the work involved in nonprofit arts administration, better understand the role of the arts in communities and develop “real life” business skills that can be put to use in their future careers. During the 10-week summer internships, participating organizations gain the assistance of a motivated student to help with special or seasonal projects. Participating organizations also play an important role in developing potential new leaders and advocates in the arts sector, who may go on to pursue careers in arts administration or take on board or volunteer responsibilities.

Combined, the Getty and County programs continue to provide the largest paid arts internship program in the United States, employing more than 190 undergraduate interns in arts organizations across LA County during the summer of 2013 alone.

The Los Angeles County Arts Commission gratefully acknowledges the support of The Getty Foundation in providing the funding for the educational program components of the Los Angeles County Arts Internship Program.
