Creative Long Beach Internship Program Guidelines
Creative Long Beach Host Application
Creative Long Beach is a semester-long paid internship program that serves college students and arts and culture nonprofit organizations in the city of Long Beach. The Arts Council’s internship program matches upper division or graduate students at California State University, Long Beach’s (CSULB) College of the Arts and Long Beach City College (LBCC) students with Long Beach arts organizations. Students develop a deeper understanding of nonprofit arts administration and the role of the arts in the community. Participating host site organizations help develop new arts leaders while gaining the assistance of motivated students. Creative Long Beach aids with expanding Long Beach’s internship capacity and local hiring goals. In addition to working 10 hours a week for 17 weeks at each organization, students participate in programming events which include professional development events and a seminar.
