The Broadway League supports a year-round internship program for graduating high school and college students with positions available for the fall, spring, and summer.

Interns research content for Facebook and Twitter, help with website maintenance and analytics, and assist with website content including multi-media content.

Education interns compose professional documents, manage databases, organize materials for department on a daily basis, and help coordinate meetings and programming for initiatives such as Family First Nights® and Broadway Speakers Bureau seminars.
The Marketing Department is responsible for various initiatives marketing the Broadway industry including the annual promotion Kids’ Night on Broadway, the audience development program Viva Broadway, as well as the Tony Awards.
