Brooklyn Interns for Arts & Culture (BIAC) is a college, career, and life-readiness program designed to support high school students as they grow into the most authentic versions of themselves while contributing to the creative community around them.

In this program students learn what it takes to create and maintain a fulfilling career in the arts, get support with post high school plans, and express themselves through creative workshops that encourage them to be their best—personally, academically, and artistically.

The program begins in July 2022, when rising high school seniors engage in weekly college preparation classes, professional development workshops, and art-making and studio sessions. These workshops prepare students for their year-long, paid internship in BAM’s Education Department, which runs from October 2022 to June 2023.


In this program, students will:

  • ・Go behind-the-scenes at one of the country’s oldest performing arts venues
  • ・Attend weekly workshops and events designed to sharpen their personal, academic and professional vision, voice, and power
  • ・Create a plan for college, a career, and/or training options after high school
  • ・Grow their peer and professional network and engage with BAM professional staff
  • ・Gain exposure to college life through campus tours and college prep coursework
  • ・Get one-on-one support with the college application process
  • ・Improve their public speaking skills, practice interviewing for jobs, create a resume, and build experience in other areas of career-readiness
  • ・Receive college application and SAT fee waiver(s)


Summer session will meet virtually with potential for select in-person meetings and/or events. The program runs from July 2022 to June 2023 in three sessions: Summer 2022, Fall 2022, and Spring 2023. The deadline to apply is Fri, Jun 3, 2022.


This is a paid opportunity. Students will receive stipends for all three sessions.
