Congratulations to Philadelphia’s 2017 Bloomberg Arts Interns!


Please join The Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance and Philadelphia Youth Network’s WorkReady program in congratulating our 2017 cohort of Bloomberg Arts Interns in Philadelphia who recently completed a 6 week paid summer internship with 28 leading cultural organizations in the city.

Bloomberg interns strengthened their professional skills and gained insight into careers in the arts and cultural community while enhancing their worksites’ ability to staff summer programs and projects.  As one worksite supervisor noted, “We really enjoyed working with these talented and motivated students.  Their work has a beneficial impact on our organization’s mission.”

“We recognize the importance of programs such as this that introduce future leaders to career paths in the cultural sector in Philadelphia!”

The interns, rising seniors from Philadelphia public high schools, also participated in rigourous professional development and writing workshops, college readiness seminars, and cultural site visits throughout Philadelphia.

Please join us in congratulating the following 2017 Bloomberg Interns on a job well done!
