Summer Education Internship

Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts
Working Time
Full Time

Wolf Trap internships and apprenticeships give budding professionals a competitive edge—whether they seek jobs in the arts or any other field.

Employers are looking for college graduates who can hit the ground running—those who don’t need training in basic workplace skills, like inter-office communications and coordinating multiple projects. 

Interns and apprentices get a nuanced view of a field that is rapidly changing and what it takes to evolve and innovate. This experience helps interns and apprentices build leadership skills that can be applied to the performing arts or any line of work they choose to pursue.
