Museums have great cultural and economic value in society

Its exhibitions allow you to travel back in time to learn about history, traditions and research. But they also offer an opportunity for young people to learn about the possible careers that can be followed in the field of the arts.

One such museum is the National American Latino Museum, which offers an internship program for young people to explore careers in this field.

“This program is designed to attract undergraduates to explore careers in the museum workforce,” says Ana Reyes, program manager for the Latino Museum.

95% of the exhibits come from his personal collection.

The National Museum of the American Latino program has generated great impact in the community for more than 25 years, carrying the message of the richness of cultural diversity and the importance of Latinos in the world.

However, according to Reyes, only 5% of Latinos work in this sector. That is why they are making this appeal to attract students from this group.

Students interested in participating must be enrolled as an undergraduate at a university in the United States. They must be permanent resident US citizens or with a work permit.

This program is conducted in Washington DC, and is managed by the Smithsonian Institution, which includes some twenty museums and a dozen research centers.

Interested persons should apply via the museum’s website, by clicking here. The deadline is April 7, 2023.

The museum also offers financial aid to students.

Nearly 100 years ago, the Field Museum acquired a bronze sword from Europe, and at the time it was thought to be a well-made replica.

“Our internships are fully paid,” Reyes points out. “Students receive payment for their attendance that helps cover food and transportation costs here in Washington, D.C.

The program also offers accommodation during the internship, which begins in August and lasts 12 weeks.
