The Penn Museum is able to host a small cohort of paid teen interns through the Bloomberg Arts Internship (BAI) Program each summer. BAI interns work directly with a specific Museum department (Conservation, Marketing, Exhibits, etc.) to gain valuable hands-on experience, while also receiving engaging professional development and college readiness workshops from BAI staff.For more information about the program and how to apply visit the Bloomberg Arts Internship website.
