Internships

Learn new skills, gain work experience, and make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities by interning with VSA Florida.  Internships are part-time unpaid opportunities that are intended to complement a student's current program of study. Applicants must be currently enrolled juniors or seniors in undergraduate programs, graduate students, or have completed a degree within the past two years. 

Internship duties may include:

  • Observing artist in residence lessons

  • Assisting at festivals and outreach events

  • Researching and developing teacher or adult artist training webinars or professional development

  • Researching and writing educational resources

  • Writing press releases

Please note- this is an arts/ nonprofit administration internship.  There will be very limited opportunities to teach art to children.

How to Apply

Please submit a cover letter, resume and unofficial transcripts to Jennifer Sabo, Executive Director, at jsabo@usf.edu. In your cover letter, please address your goals for the internship (what do you want to learn, what skills do you want to gain, etc.).  VSA Florida accepts one intern per semester and applicants are encouraged to apply at least one month prior to their desired starting date.
