Program Description: 

Spotlight offers high school students the opportunity to explore careers in the arts through paid internships with one of our many dynamic collaborators in San Francisco. This workforce development training program focuses on providing service to low income youth ages 14 to 17. Past internship sites have included Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts, A.C.T. Costume Shop, Cartoon Art Museum, Zaccho Dance Theatre, African American Art & Culture Complex, San Francisco Opera, and Intersection for the Arts. Youth are placed in internships based on their interests in particular arts sectors. In addition to exposure at their own work site, Spotlight Interns take “backstage” tours of art facilities and receive personalized presentations from veterans in the industry. These comprehensive workshops also cover conflict resolution, college preparation and career development. This is a paid internship opportunity for high school students and students are paid a stipend for their hours. There are two cycles: summer, and school year. In the summer, youth intern at their placement sites for 16 hours per week and attend weekly workshops. Youth who have completed the summer program may apply to participage in the continuation program during the school year for up to seven hours per week for seven months.
