Wolf Trap’s Internship Program provides project-based training and experience to approximately 40 interns annually. Interns become integral members of the staff working side-by-side with professionals producing, promoting, and administering all aspects of the performing arts.
Summer Internships are offered in the following departments:
- Communications and Marketing
Multimedia, Web Communications, Graphic Design, Marketing, Advertising Sales/Group Sales, Publications, Public Relations, and Photography
- Planning and Initiatives
Grants Management/Foundation Relations, Major Gifts, Annual Fund, and Special Events
- Program and Production
- Wolf Trap Opera Company
Directing, Administrative, Stage Management, Technical Theater, Scenic/Prop Painting, and Costuming
- Ticket Services
- Information Systems
Summer internships are paid, full time (40-plus hours per week), and 12 weeks in duration. Housing is the responsibility of the student, although guidance in this matter is available. Wolf Trap Interns are required to have a reliable mode of transportation as the Wolf Trap Foundation is not accessible by public transit.
Diversity Initiatives: Wolf Trap offers a diversity component designed to provide qualified African-American and Hispanic/Latino students with a high-quality intern experience in arts administration. Participants in the diversity component receive free transportation and housing in metropolitan Washington, DC for the duration of their internship.
Application deadline for Summer 2010 internships is March 1.
