Internships

Join the Summer Intern Program!

At the Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles, the opportunity to support young people to explore, develop, and grow individually and as professionals is an important aspect of our mission. We look forward to building a community of interns who can develop relationships with peers, other professionals in the field, and other organizations. We know many of our interns will enter the non-profit arts field in the Greater Los Angeles area and are excited to contribute to our organization.

 Internships are open to high school, undergraduate and graduate level students. If you are NOT a student, but would still like to work with us this summer, please check back soon for information on our volunteer program.

The internship programs are designed to accomplish two things:

1) to support the Levitt to accomplish its mission of building community through music
2) to support students to learn and grow as individuals and professionals and to explore professional opportunities and potential career paths.

There are three types of internships available at the Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles for Summer 2016. Please refer to the job descriptions for a more detailed look each position. Intern work is project-based, making these internships an excellent opportunity to gain real-world experience in a non-profit arts organization setting.
