New Jersey: Diversity in Arts Leadership Internship
The New Jersey State Council on the Arts (NJSCA) is the first-ever state partner in the Diversity in Arts Leadership (DIAL) internship program. Created by Americans for the Arts (AFTA), this national program, which began in New York City, strives to strengthen and advance diversity in the arts management field and help foster the next generation of creative leaders. In partnership with AFTA, NJSCA is matching undergraduate students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds with nonprofit arts organizations for a 10-week, paid summer internship in New Jersey. Interns, who are chosen from a competitive pool of students, receive hands-on experiences in nonprofit arts administration as well as ongoing opportunities to participate in professional activities with dynamic leaders and a diverse cohort of peers. Interns also are paired with private-sector business mentors in the state, who guide students’ professional and personal growth and help realize the program’s goal of creating a more vibrant and equitable arts ecosystem. To learn more, contact NJSCA Program Associate Stephanie Nerbak.
