New 42nd Street Apprentice Corps


The Apprentice Corps is one of the four separate creative youth development programs within the New 42nd Street Youth Corps. Apprentices take on a wide variety of responsibilities within the daily operations of The New 42nd Street and its projects. In addition to providing hands-on involvement in the business of running a nonprofit performing arts organization, these paid employment opportunities also include weekly seminars and workshops on such topics as professionalism, interview skills and resume writing.


The program operates for 12-week terms during the fall, spring and summer. Apprentices are paid for 18-20 hours of work per week.

PLEASE NOTE: The Apprentice Corps is on hiatus. We will not be hiring apprentices for the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018. The application process will reopen ahead of the Summer 2018 term.
