The Creative Long Beach Internship Program strives to develop and retain new arts leaders by pairing California State University, Long Beach and Long Beach City College students with quality internships at Long Beach arts and cultural organizations.
- Currently enrolled students at the time of the internship.
- Currently enrolled upper division undergraduate or graduate level California State University, Long Beach students with a major or minor in the an arts related field.
- Currently enrolled Long Beach City College students who demonstrate significant success in arts coursework and have completed at least 20 units in an arts related field.
In addition to working at each host site organization, interns participate in programming which includes two professional development events and one annual seminar. The first professional development event is in partnership with The Nonprofit Partnership and the second with CSULB’s Career Development Center as well as three community professionals. Through this programming students learn about the fundamentals of nonprofits, are exposed to career resources, and hear from Long Beach community professionals on how the arts and culture sector has served as a stake in their creative career.
