the embodiment of our efforts
Cultural workforce development is an important part of putting our values into action. Some of our interns are Songsters who have grown into larger leadership roles, while others have joined the team to serve specific functions within the organization.
All of our interns are paid and are often consulted on decisions ranging from our budget to the development of new programs, to our general development as a nonprofit. We hope these opportunities encourage them to develop a range of essential skills that can help competitive candidates as they enter the cultural workforce.
Interns have varying responsibilities depending on their individual roles; at this time, we have interns who help oversee the TRP social media accounts, as well as interns who are trained to facilitate jams, workshops, and conversations about race and equity.
These paid internships are funded by private donors contributing alongside partners at Seattle’s Office of Arts & Culture and Northwest Folklife.
