Internship (for academic credit)
Art from Ashes
Internships are the best way to bridge the gap between going to school and landing a great job. They can help provide valuable work experience by learning the ropes from experienced professionals. At Art from Ashes, we support the community through creative empowerment workshops for youth. Yet we also have need for every skill required to run any business, including communications and marketing, HR and management, administration, fundraising and resource development, events coordination, and youth workshop facilitation.
At the end of your internship, you’ll not only receive school credit for real-life learning opportunities, but you'll have relevant experience to help you decide if starting your career in the field of your internship is the right choice for you.
It also helps that 7 out of 10 internships result in a full-time job offer, which means interning in Denver can also serve as the foundation to landing a full-time job in that city after graduation.
Apply for an internship opportunity with Art from Ashes in a multitude of fields, and we'll set up an interview within a week of receiving your application. Please note that only two internships are available per semester: http://www.artfromashes.org/support/internship/
About Art from Ashes
1310 West 10th Ave, Denver, CO 80204, US
The Mission of Art from Ashes is to empower struggling youth by providing creative programs that facilitate health and hope through expression,connection and transformation.
Since its inception in 2003, Art from Ashes (AfA) has provided creative empowerment workshops to high-risk youth, facilitating expression, connection and transformation among the most neglected and vulnerable segments of our community. AfA’s creative programs use the combination of creativity and neurology to provide workshops that not only offer young people access to the arts and to their creative power, but in doing so also address risk factors among struggling young people. Our foundational program, Phoenix Rising, uses poetry and spoken word to empower young people through the language of metaphor. Other programs include Drawing on Air, Casting Shadows and Wingspan. To date, AfA has provided creative workshops with more than 150 partnering organizations for more than 11,000 young people who have survived traumatic events, are victims of abuse, neglect and/or poverty, and are at risk for or engaged in destructive behaviors.
