“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.”
