Frequently Asked Questions Internships 2023
Who is eligible for a PVTC internship?
Students who are entering 9th grade through recent high school graduates are eligible for PVTC internships. Recent high school graduates who are looking to take on greater responsibility are welcome to apply for our junior staff roles instead of an internship.
What is the application process like?
All interested applicants should first fill out the correct application form, which includes some basic information about your availability and the specific types of internships you’d be most interested in holding. We also ask for students to describe their past experience in theatre/education, along with a brief personal statement that helps us get to know more about approaches to problem solving and creativity. If this is your first time interning, we also ask that you include a letter of recommendation from an adult who is not related to you.
First-time interns will also have a 15-minute interview with Intern Coordinator, Lizzie so that we can get to know you better.
Internship decisions will be released on Friday, April 14. We aim to match students to the roles and responsibilities that will cater to their interests and offer new skills, while also supporting the needs of every camp.
What about COVID regulations?
Masking is optional. Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 or who is COVID-positive should NOT come to campus.
Are remote internships available?
At this time we are not offering remote internships.
How are interns compensated?
PVTC’s intern program includes hands-on education and mentorship in theatre, I.D.E.A. (inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility) work, and community building. Summer interns will have the option to receive community service hours or a modest stipend for their work. We are also happy to provide letters of recommendation!
