About the Internship Program

LMCC’s Internship program provides meaningful opportunities for individuals interested in the arts and culture sector, from the perspective of a leading non-profit organization in New York City. LMCC connects you to a robust network of professional connections and gives you the hands-on experience you need to advance your career in a variety of non-profit arts settings. Whether you are in college, a recent graduate, or a curious professional looking to make a career transition, our 25-person staff is ready to share their experience with you.

LMCC’s Internship program offers year-long and summer internship  opportunities for interns to gain an in-depth experience at the organization. Interns choose an internship focus to pursue under the guidance of a staff member, while gaining exposure to all departments in our collaborative-minded office.

During the program, all interns receive a monthly participation honorarium of $100. Interns also receive a monthly travel stipend of $150 and monthly meal stipend of $100. Interns also have access to a professional development reimbursement fund of up to $150 throughout the internship. All internships are structured at 16 - 20 hours per week, including supporting our evening and weekend events. The start/end dates of the program are flexible and should be agreed upon between the intern and their supervisor prior to the start of the internship.
