We're looking for a student with an active interest in the arts &
culture, including "indie" popular music, books, television, film,
comedy and so on.


The Sound of Young America is happy to capitalize on the vast
potential of our nation's young people -- specifically, the vast
potential of them to work for us for free. To further that end, we
offer a comprehensive internship program, welcoming a student each
academic semester to slave and study at our feet. (Not literally, you
will get your own desk.)

Students must commit to 24 hours per week in the summer, and 20 hours
per week in the winter or spring, working in our office in Los
Angeles' Koreatown. We prefer students who will receive academic
credit for their work. (This work incentive is our best legal
substitute for our preferred arrangement, indentured servitude.)
Interns should expect to work actively and directly in the production
of The Sound of Young America, as well as the rest of our media

Dates & Deadlines

We offer three internship periods, each approximately 3 months in
length. The Fall period runs roughly from September through December,

period from June through August. We can make some provision for
varying academic schedules as neccessary.

The Application Deadline for the fall period is August 3rd. For the
Spring/Winter period it is November 15th. For the summer period it is
February 15th. Decisions will be made within four weeks.
