San Anto Cultural Arts is offering college students an opportunity to make a profound impact on our community this summer. We are a grassroots nonprofit founded in 1993 with the mission to foster human and community development through community-based arts. Interns will work with youth and community members in our two core programs: The Community Mural & Public Art Program and El Placazo Community Newspaper & Mentor Program.
El Placazo Community Newspaper is a community-operated newspaper designed as an educational tool for participants interested in developing skills in all aspects of newspaper production. The newspaper serves as a unique outlet for our participants to express themselves and to document their culture. Interns will take part in the entire process of creating the newspaper while facilitating different aspects of its production with community participants.
Our Community Mural & Public Art Program identifies, develops and mobilizes artistically-inclined youth and young adults to create collaborative community murals and public art pieces within the San Antonio community. Interns will take part in the entire process of creating a public art piece while facilitating different aspects of its production with community participants.
Other duties will include general office work, database maintenance, program documentation, social media content creation, event planning and management, newspaper distribution, mural painting, and other good stuff.
Space is limited and competitive. Send a cover letter explaining why you would be a good fit for San Anto, a resume including your college/university work, community/volunteer experience, and at least one reference to firstname.lastname@example.org. Since we work with youth, background checks will be required. Deadline to apply: May 11, 2018. Internships with San Anto are rewarding but not paid.
