internship program

The Rhapsody Project’s paid interns are funded by generous donors and grants. They are deeply embedded in the development of our organization—especially as we pivot from the pandemic to the new world. In addition to conducting independent projects exploring personal and cultural heritage, our interns run tRp’s social media accounts and learning bankable skills as they prepare to join the cultural workforce.
