Youth Internships

Talented, low-income teens and young adults, enrolled in Advanced Studies, are provided internship opportunities that develop on-the-job skills, while teaching them what it takes to work in creative sectors. In addition to paid internships at Venice Arts, placements are made with creative companies. Past examples include: NBC-Universal, the Sundance Institute, Brave New Films, KCRW, and Anonymous Content.

[Through this internship,] I learned how to learn from somebody higher up in the scale of experience.
— Jocelyn, age 16
