Summer Internships

Explore the Possibilities!


As a paid summer intern, you are a key piece of the puzzle to ensure Summer Program runs smoothly, students are safe, learning, thriving and having fun. Interns spend most of their time at POP working directly with students and teaching artists in a classroom. POP relies on interns to support administrative functions such as taking attendance and monitoring mealtimes.  

Once per week, interns meet with arts leaders across Philadelphia to hear from their experiences and understand the vast landscape of non-profit careers after graduation.
