LMCC Internship Program

2014 - 2015

LMCC is an ideal setting to learn in an ‘out-of-the-classroom’ setting. Whether you are in college, a recent graduate, or a young adult looking to make a career transition, our 20-person staff is ready to share their experience with you.

LMCC believes that visionary cultural initiatives can lead to sustainable community growth and the development in both quantity and quality of opportunities for artists if those initiatives;

  • Align with the neighborhood needs;
  • Find support from both public and private sectors; and
  • Engage cross-sector partnerships.
  • Internship Focuses: Listed below are the 15 different internship focuses available to choose from. Based on your internship focus, you will be paired one-on-one with a staff member at LMCC to contribute your knowledge, apply your skills, and deepen your interests and find new ones too. Our open office plan and frequent collaboration across departments, also makes the perfect environment to gain an understanding of the entire organization. Below are descriptions for each focus and you can rank your top three choices on the online application form.

    Nuts & Bolts: Internships are for approximately 4 months for an average of 20 hours per week, including helping with evening and weekend events. A travel stipend of $125 per month will be provided for the duration of the internship. The start/end dates of the program are flexible and should be agreed upon between the intern and their supervisor prior to the start of the internship.
