Internship Opportunities

SUPERFRONT is currently seeking applications for internships. Interns are a vital part of SUPERFRONT. SUPERFRONT’s internship opportunities are based on our programming and needs and are assigned to candidates with the appropriate skills, attitude and interests.

All of SUPERFRONT’s internships will be located in New York. Young professionals, recent graduates, or college students who have an interest in architecture, art, design-built, urban planning, community development, public art, nonprofit management, public relations, development, and marketing are encouraged to apply. Internships are unpaid. IDP Credit via NCARB is available. We request a minimum contribution of 10-15 hours per week with the opportunity to work flexibly and independently between April and August.
