Cultural Corps Summer Intensive

Recent alumni of CUNY (including those who will graduate Spring 2018) who are serious about pursuing a career in the arts and culture sector will participate in a 9-week full-time work experience during the summer.

  • Alumni will receive a wage of $15/hour and work 35 hours per week.
  • Prior to engaging with their host sites, alumni will undergo intensive training in key areas of professional development.
  • Periodically, alumni may attend cultural events hosted by partners and affiliated programs.
  • Pending job availability and participant success, CUNY will work with the host site to explore the possibility of extending participant engagement with the site after program completion.

*NOTE: Alumni who attend a non-CUNY institution during the time since graduating CUNY are still eligible to apply, though preference will be given to recent graduates of CUNY.
