Community members and friends who want to make a difference in Newark. Community lovers eager to share their passion.

UVSO internships are designed to be a learning experience for sharp, enthusiastic self-starters, with or without skills.
Our interns do meaningful work across various shows and departments, are an integral part of the team, and assist with all aspects of work. Over the internship term, interns can learn multiple skills, including community engagement, marketing, administrative support, reporting, editing, production, field recording, digital audio editing, taping, planning live events, research, and more.
