New Perspectives Theatre works with high school and college students so they can learn first-hand about the technical and administrative aspects of the not-for-profit theatre community through structured internships. The program places an emphasis on recruiting minority interns and helps to improve their communication, organizational and conceptual skills, and provide a mentoring experience for young people who may lack positive relationships with adults. Undergraduate and graduate students from Hunter College, NYU, Antioch College, Rutgers University, Philadelphia's University of the Arts, and Savannah College of Art & Design have participated in the program. 10th-12th graders from the School for the Physical City, Bronx Lab School and the Settlement College Readiness Program have also been interns in the past.
We also work with adult learners interested in expanding their skills and experience. To date we have had visiting professionals from Canada, Tazmania, France and Germany.
If you are interested in becoming an intern, please send your resume, the dates and times you are interested in working, and a paragraph or cover letter explaining what you are interested in doing as an intern to firstname.lastname@example.org.
