KEXP’s Internship Program seeks to provide interns from historically under-invited and under-represented communities with hands-on experience in the nonprofit arts sector. Our program is designed to develop and equip emerging leaders, interested in furthering their careers, in a variety of fields including music programming, audio production, and nonprofit capacity building.
Our interns learn skills in business communication, project management, problem-solving, audio technology, database management and more. These skills and experiences offer our interns a unique ground-level glimpse of the day-to-day life of a community-supported arts organization, while offering relationship building and networking opportunities with individuals throughout the music industry.

We can't wait to welcome four interns to join us at KEXP this Spring.
