In-School Career Seminars
Apollo Theater Academy In-School Career Seminars offer students the opportunity to interact with business and creative professionals from the performing arts and entertainment industries. Seminars take place on-site at selected high schools and focus on such topics as marketing and public relations, entertainment law, artist management and technical production. Students are engaged through small group and project-based learning activities and gain insight into behind-the-scenes careers.
Seminars are offered free of charge to schools but require an application.
High School Internship Program
The Apollo Theater Academy High School Internship Program provides high school seniors with opportunities for personal and professional development as they explore non-performance careers in the arts and entertainment industries. Through hands-on training and career development workshops interns experience a real world work environment and connect with industry professionals. This program is highly competitive; therefore, not everyone who applies will be selected to participate.

While working to provide an opportunity for youth to showcase their work, the Young Producers learn to produce and manage events under the tutelage of seasoned arts and entertainment professionals.
