Interns are an important part of the MMDG community. MMDG makes a commitment to providing project-based, meaningful work with a focus on career development for all interns. Participants will experience a broad overview of the organization through involvement with various special projects and events. Interns receive direct supervision and participate in regular check-ins with their on-site supervisor. Many have gone on to enjoy successful careers in the nonprofit performing arts sector.

  • Internships are hosted year-round for Fall, Winter/Spring, and Summer terms.
  • Applicants must be 18+ and authorized to work in the US.
  • MMDG’s internships require a commitment of 15-20 hours per week, but shorter or longer commitments will be approved on a case by case basis.
