The Markaz is a unique place with a friendly, relaxed work environment. Our focus is building bridges and we achieve this by creating public arts programs that provide a safe space for cultures in conflict to come together.
Volunteers can apply themselves to a variety of tasks and situations, and often work on specific projects or public programs. Interns typically work 12-20 hours per week for a pre-determined period concluding with an evaluation and recommendation. Here's what one intern commented about her summer with us:
"I had a great summer at the Markaz. I was able to learn about every step of how a not-for-profit organization runs—from the creation of an idea, to contacting constituents, to writing grant letters, to meeting with board members and everything in between. I can't imagine a better education! Getting to learn about and interact with the diverse Middle East population of Los Angeles was an amazing experience and it has changed the way that I look at some of the problems, and possible solutions, to the Middle East. I can't suggest the experience highly enough!"
