NEAR’s interns are an integral part of our team and NEAR projects that bring structured expressive arts events and counseling to underserved individuals, families and communities locally, regionally and nationally. Interns are creative critical thinkers and makers, who bring ideas and support to NEAR and her clients. Computer technology skills are a plus.
NEAR provides hands-on intern experiences via the ongoing development of an expressive arts response nonprofit, inquiries to underserved communities, creation of expressive arts workshops and classes, grant writing, fundraising, expressive arts responses to transitional developments and learning how expressive arts are interwoven in therapy and healing. If the intern is a college student, credit hours may be negotiated.
• Maintain hours agreed upon in internship contract. Remote work is possible.
• Collaborate with NEAR executive director in the development of expressive arts workshops and classes. Help with workshops when able.
• Develop one expressive arts workshop in response to a community need (per college quarter, if a student) and facilitate the workshop with support from director.
• Explore and research how the expressive arts are applied in counseling. If internship is college credit bearing, write an essay on findings (if a college student, length based on internship credits).
• Office work as needed (filing, assist in grant proposals, etc.).
