Internship Opportunities

Shunpike has all sorts of opportunities for those that would like to learn more about working in arts administration in a fast-growing nonprofit organization.

We like to work with our interns to design a job description based on their own areas of interest. When you apply, please describe your ideal internship with Shunpike. Here are a few sample ideas to get you started:

  • Development Intern: Develop skills in grantwriting, grants calendar assembly, donation management and fundraising and event planning
  • Programs Intern: Explore Shunpike’s programs and partner arts groups by assisting with contracting, proposal writing, records maintenance and program evaluation and development

Interns will be expected to spend part of their time completing administrative tasks, and part of their time developing their special project for Shunpike. Past projects have included a program evaluation, communications overview and research on program development.

Shunpike has worked with graduate and undergraduate interns, as well as those not currently in a degree program. All should feel welcome to apply!

“Interning at Shunpike was a great experience for me from the start. The knowledgeable staff created an office environment that is both productive and fun. Each member of the team believes in Shunpike’s mission and works tirelessly to achieve it. And, because the office is smaller, everyone has a chance to contribute and be a part of the team. I would definitely recommend this internship to anyone interested in non-profit arts administration. There’s no better place to learn.”
