Description
Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's LMCC’s Internship program provides meaningful opportunities for individuals interested in the arts and culture sector, from the perspective of a leading non-profit organization in New York City. LMCC connects you to a robust network of professional connections and gives you the hands-on experience you need to advance your career in a variety of non-profit arts settings. Whether you are in college, a recent graduate, or a curious professional looking to make a career transition, our 25-person staff is ready to share their experience with you.

LMCC’s Internship program offers a four-month internship in the Fall, a six-month internship in the Winter/Spring, and a special Summer cycle. Interns choose an internship focus to pursue under the guidance of a staff member, while gaining exposure to all departments in our collaborative-minded office.

During the program, all interns receive a monthly participation honorarium of $100 and have access to $100 for professional development purposes. Interns also receive a monthly travel stipend of $150 and monthly meal stipend of $100. All internships are for an average of 20 hours per week, including supporting our evening and weekend events. The start/end dates of the program are flexible and should be agreed upon between the intern and their supervisor prior to the start of the internship.
