2023 marks our 10th year of incorporation! We will have our 10th year celebration soon.
Welcome to our Winter 2023 Cohort!
This month we successfully kicked off our 16th internship program! Our interns come from all across the country and have unique talents, skills, and passions. We are completing the initial two weeks of training, where we equip and empower our participants by giving them the skills and confidence to be successful in their internships. We look forward to the internships starting in February.
Welcome to our employer partners!
We are excited to welcome out newest employer partner, Atlas Performing Arts Center, a non-profit performing arts venue in a historic theater. The Atlas fosters and presents art in film, dance, music, theater, vocal and choral work, spoken word, and beyond. This is our first partnership with a theater arts company and we could not be more excited.
We are also happy to welcome back 5 previous employer partners this Winter!
