YOBC Internships are structured positions that are designed to provide student interns with valuable work experience in a specific area of service. Internships require a commitment of time and service from the student, and involve supervision and instruction from a YOBC conductor or administrator. Specific responsibilities and hours are determined jointly, in advance, by YOBC and the student interns.
Interns serve as a teaching assistant under the supervision of a YOBC conductor in the Junior/Intermediate Division. Typical duties may include tuning, leading sectionals, demonstrating skills, leading warm-ups, and individual instruction. Experienced interns may be asked to assist in conducting. Teaching intern positions involve working at YOBC rehearsals and concerts. Apply Here.
Interns serve as an administrative assistant under the supervision of a YOBC administrator.

Administrative intern hours may involve work after school, on weekends, on school holidays, or during the summer, depending on the student’s schedule and work requirements. Apply Here.
Volunteer Service Work
YOBC uses student volunteers to help with a wide variety of jobs and projects. Volunteer service does not require a regular commitment of time.

Sample volunteer jobs might include, but are not limited to, Chamber Concert stage crew/manager, preparation of senior gift packages, special event volunteers, general office work, envelope stuffing, library maintenance, data entry, ensemble rehearsal set-up/clean-up assistants, etc.
