WELCOME TO YOUR BAI APPLICATION! 

DEADLINE:  March 13, 2024

NEW IN 2024! 
Organizations DO NOT NEED TO BE A nonprofit in order to apply! But, they do need to be connected to the arts and culture scene in Baltimore! (We can decide together what that means!) 

We are thrilled that you have landed here whether as a veteran worksite partner or a BRAND NEW ONE!  Our BAI family continues to grow and we are GRATEFUL.

As you now know, interns will work on meaningful creative and administrative projects at their placements (that’s YOU!), start their Common Application, write their college essay, create a digital portfolio of all of their work, and present their summers to family, friends, supervisors, and community at our culminating event.  What does this really look like? 

  • After five days of Orientation to prepare, students start their internships. 
  • On Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, students are completing their internships. Each worksite will work with its intern to determine if participation during their internship will be in person or hybrid. Interns should work 21 hours each week at their internship.
  • EXCEPTION TO THE RULE: In Week One, interns are with you Monday, July 1 and Tuesday, July 2. They will come to Professional Development on Wednesday, July 3 and Friday, July 5. *Interns are off on July 4th. (We hope you are, too!) In Week 6.5, they will come to you for their last day on Monday, August 12 and will come to their last day of Professional Development on Tuesday, August 13. 
  • On Thursdays and Fridays, students participate in professional development, engage with panels of artists and college admissions officers, and travel through the city's vibrant arts and cultural scene!  

REMEMBER, your organization will be paid a stipend of $1500.00 per intern to help offset the cost of staff time in supervising and guiding the intern(s). WE WANT AND NEED YOUR TALENTS AND EXPERTISE IN SPACE TOGETHER!

**Are all of those dates making your head spin?

 

Check out THESE calendars! (Hopefully they will help!)
FYI: This summer we are only offering CANVA workshops for interns during Orientation (not the Adobe Suite). WHY? Because it has been a real struggle to get free Adobe accounts for interns AND they can do almost everything Adobe has to with CANVA PREMIUM! If there are other trainings you require, please consider providing those for your intern(s) in the first days of the internship. 
APPLICATION NOTES

There are also RANDOM QUESTION ALERTS throughout! These are questions designed by our Youth Advisory Council to make the process a little more fun. They are also in the student application, so you can talk with your intern(s) about them! 
OK, LET'S GO!

IT'S ABOUT TO GET REAL

PART ONE: JOB POSTING(S)

Please write a job posting for the position you are imagining for your intern.  If you are asking for two or three interns who will have different positions, please include two ore more postings

We have broken up the components for you to complete! 
 
Please note: 
  • We will use the job posting(s) for our Matching Event so that students have a true understanding of the position. 
  • It might be an intern's first peek at a job posting! 
  • We will also be incorporating how to read job postings into some of our professional development.
  • It's ALL connected! 
  • Fear not, we will give you an opportunity to revise this posting before the Matching Event in case things have changed!
  • Check out last summer's postings HERE!
LET'S DO IT! 

JOB POSTING #1 (This might be for ONE intern OR could be the same posting for 2-3 interns!)



Role Responsibilities (For your intern!) 
  • Ensure that there are both creative and administrative opportunities!
  • Are there projects with long-term goals that interns could engage in? We have seen that these types of projects lead to the development of deeper skills. 
  • What concrete, completed deliverables will interns create that will be used by the organization? (For example, in 2020, one intern created an online curriculum for the museum, another intern created a guidebook of programming available on the organization's website, and a third intern recorded podcasts of staff to post on the organization's website.)
