Community Programs, a branch of ICP’s Education Department, seeks an intern to assist with all aspects of youth–based photography program administration.

Department: Community Programs
Supervisor: Manager of Museum Education and Community Partnerships
Schedule: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays; 15-20 hours/week
Compensation: Work-study hours

Description

A year-round schedule of Community Programs brings the rewards of photographic expression to people of every age and background, through Museum Education offerings (gallery tours and workshops, teacher trainings, interpretative materials, etc.), classes for high school students (Teen Academy), and off-site Community Partnerships with schools, community centers, and social service organizations. By creating opportunities for photographic education, ICP enables individuals to explore photography as a way of understanding themselves and the bonds that form a community.   

The main responsibility of this internship is to support Community Programs across initiatives, including assisting with tours and workshops, supporting hands-on teen photography programs, and assisting in the day-to-day operations of our department. Interns often assist with the research, preparation, documentation, and implementation of all programs. Depending on applicants’ experiences and interests, there are also opportunities for interns work as Teaching Assistants in ICP’s teen photography classes.

Qualifications/Skills

Applicants must possess strong communication and administrative skills; an understanding of arts education; the capacity to multi-task and to work independently; along with the ability to problem solve. Ideal candidates must also have a strong knowledge of photography—its history, techniques, and aesthetics. A familiarity with computer programs such as Microsoft Office and Photoshop are required. Must have excellent customer service skills and thrive in a high-energy, fast-paced environment.

Benefits

Internships are unpaid but receive work-study hours, one credit hour for every hour worked. Work-study hours can be used for darkroom time or a tuition discount on ICP classes. Interns are also invited to attend private openings and artist talks.
