Qualities we look for in an intern:

The Arts Bus Project is looking for energetic interns who enjoy doing something different everyday and relish thinking outside the box! Flexibility and an ability to think on one’s feet are essential, as well as a flair for multi-tasking.Most of all, we look for interns who would enjoy working with young children and their parents.A major in Early Childhood Development, Art and/or Theater studies, or Non-Profit Management would best fit this position, but we are open to others.The internship begins in the latter part of May, and runs through June, July and August.The internship is non-paid; however there are many opportunities to receive excellent, practical experience.Housing options supplied upon request.
