The Center will offer internships over a minimum of twelve weeks; starting in September, 2017. Internships are academic and unpaid. Students applying for the Center's intern program are required to be registered for credit from their college institution. (Students are expected to obtain and complete the necessary forms to receive credit for their internship. Students are also responsible for meeting any registration requirements from their college or university.)

Interns attend bi-weekly sessions that are led by executives of the Center to learn about the different parts of the organization and how they work together. Interns may attend performances, workshops, and classes presented by the Center, free of charge (if space is available), during their internship.
