Careers In the Arts Internship Program

Willard G. Rouse III (1942-2003) was a visionary with incredible drive. His business and civic accomplishments reflect his dedication to the City of Philadelphia. The naming of The Willard G. Rouse III Society Careers in the Arts Program serves as a permanent tribute to the ongoing support from our distinguished community leaders from throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region, who have helped to make the vision of Willard G. Rouse III a reality. 

Ensemble Arts Philly strives to impart hands-on arts management experience to participants in The Willard G. Rouse III Society Careers in the Arts Program. Through practical application of management skills, interns gain in-depth knowledge and expertise used by successful managers in today's complex world of the performing arts. 

Unpaid internships are available to current undergraduate and graduate students interested in beginning careers in performing arts management, administration, and/or arts education. Internships must either be for credit with a student's college or university, or for academic purposes with student's academic advisor made aware of the experience.  Students are selected each semester to participate in a three-to-four month long, up to 20 hours-per-week, placement in the following areas:

Please note that internships are unpaid unless otherwise specified. 
Interns, with their supervisors, develop a list of learning objectives and goals that they would like to accomplish and are assigned a project to be completed during their time at the Kimmel Center. Each intern attends required intern events and participates in final evaluations. 

Interns attend weekly sessions that are led by executives of Ensemble Arts, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and other major arts institutions in Philadelphia. Interns may attend performances, workshops, and classes presented by the Center, free of charge (space permitting), during their internship. 

All resumes received for specific positions will be kept on file for one year. All information received for general consideration will be maintained for six months. If an interview is considered appropriate, the Human Resources Department will contact you.
