DETAILS


Each spring, summer, and fall El Museo del Barrio offers Internship opportunities to promising undergraduate and graduate students, recent graduates and career changers who are considering careers in the arts, education, non-profits and museum profession. Through administrative and project-based Internships, Interns have opportunities to research, conceptualize, coordinate, execute, and/or evaluate programs and initiatives.



Due to its relatively small size, El Museo del Barrio is able to provide Interns with rewarding, valuable, hands-on learning experiences that enable them to directly impact and shape programming, meet and interact with new people, and learn about El Museo’s collection and Puerto Rican, Caribbean, and Latin American art and culture. Through its Internship program, El Museo del Barrio creates platforms for emerging museum professionals and contributes to diversifying the museum field.

During the spring and fall sessions Interns are expected to commit 14-21 hours per week during a 14-16 week cycle, and 10 week cycle during the summer.

With the exception of Arts Interns, a paid summer internship opportunities through the ArtsIntern program (www.artsintern.org), all internships are unpaid. College credit is available on a case-by-case basis.

Applicants should apply to no more than two internship positions. Please note, we are currently not reviewing materials from international applicants.

Questions can be referred to Maritza Carmona, Community + Government Relations Coordinator, via email at mcarmona@elmuseo.org.
