ARTS APPRENTICE SCHOOL YEAR 2023-2024 

Arts Apprentice Internships (18-25)

Arts Aspire is a grant-funded program offered by the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood. In 2019, the program expanded to offer the Arts Apprentice program, giving young adults ages 18-25 interested in the arts the chance to receive real-life job experiences and stipends for the work they complete. These valuable experiences build confidence and readiness for future, full-time work opportunities, no matter the field or focus.

 

The program is divided into two sessions, the School-Year Session and the Summer Session. 

 

Our Arts Apprentices spend the School-Year Session working with their Art and Culture Center supervisors from the Education, Marketing, and/or Exhibitions department two to three times a week on time-sensitive projects in preparation for ongoing programs. 

 

In the Summer, Arts Apprentices in the Education and Marketing Departments work full time Monday-Friday* supporting our Summer Arts Camp. In the Exhibitions Department, interns support with scheduling and leading tours of our gallery for groups of all ages and helping coordinate future exhibitions.

Every Arts Apprentice will:

  • Gain workplace experience at a cultural arts institution in Broward County

  • Collaborate with other interns, staff and volunteers

  • Improve administrative skills like communication and organization

  • Apply their unique skillset to the success of our annual programs, events, and exhibitions

  • Enthusiasm for education, children and the arts

  • Critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills 

  • Integrity and responsibility for the work they produce

  • Ability to work with hands and comfortability getting messy
