The Center’s Education Department reaches over 300,000 individuals each year with a variety of programs designed to create sustainable creative arts experiences for children, teachers and families. The Education intern will gain hands on experience in many aspects of arts education by working on such programs as Segerstrom Center’s On Stage and Family Series performances, Disney Musicals in Schools and Arts Teach. Assignments may include planning and facilitating kid friendly pre- show activities, welcoming and assisting students and teachers for field trip performances, helping with masterclasses and teacher professional development sessions and researching and editing educational materials such as study guides, brochures and evaluations. Internship is greatly enhanced by attending events, which may include some weekend and evening events.
