The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) is a nonprofit membership organization with 15 chapters across the country committed to promoting and preserving the practice, understanding, and appreciation of classical design. To do so, the ICAA offers a broad range of educational programs. These include intensives for architecture and design students, introductory programs for middle school students, lectures and walking tours for the public, continuing education courses for professionals and enthusiasts, travel programs to visit classical masterpieces, the publishing of original and reprinted books, and an annual journal entitled the Classicist. Through the annual Arthur Ross Awards, as well as other national and regional award programs, the ICAA also honors contemporary leaders of classical design and the related fields.

The Internship: The ICAA offers educational internships to individuals seeking to gain experience in nonprofit management, arts education, classics, art history, architecture, and related fields. The Education Internship is offered to one individual three times per year, during the fall, spring, and summer academic terms. The Education Intern is expected to commit about 2 days, or 16 hours per week, to the internship; fall and spring internships require some Saturday hours during Continuing Education courses, but scheduling is otherwise flexible.
Role & Responsibilities:
- Assist in the planning and implementation of the ICAA’s educational programs, such as Continuing Education courses and the Summer Studio in Classical Architecture. Attending the programs is encouraged and, at times, will be required.
- Learn how to catalogue and organize library books using the Library of Congress cataloguing system.
- Opportunity to receive training in Raiser’s Edge, LibraryWorld, and other programs common in nonprofit and collections management.
- Exposure to daily administration and management
In addition, the Intern is encouraged to share their professional interests before and throughout the internship. To the extent practicable, the education department will try to tailor the role to the Intern’s particular goals and interests.
