McColl Center is a nationally acclaimed artist residency and contemporary arts hub in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. We are where artists and people who care about them converge, connect, and thrive. As a hub for creativity and a catalyst for growth, McColl Center is committed to putting artists first, supporting them throughout their careers with artist studios, access to modern equipment and tools, entrepreneurship programs, and 5,000 SF of gallery space to exhibit and sell work.

As a team, we embrace diversity, equity, inclusion, and access as core values and a strategy to advance artists and community. We strive to create a welcoming space for everyone by respecting the creativity, ideas, beliefs, cultures, identities, and lived experiences of all artists, volunteers, stakeholders, visitors, staff, and partners, and assume the good intentions of those with whom we collaborate and interact.


McColl Center is searching for a Program Coordinator for our New Professionals summer internship program for high school students. The New Professionals Program is a series of seven week-long experiential learning initiatives that is sponsored by Bank of America. Students are offered on-the-job experience that can play an important role in advancing the career of arts, nonprofit and cultural leaders. Likewise, we know that arts organizations benefit from the creativity and curiosity of students and professionals who join the arts and culture management field. Our internship program takes great care to offer opportunities that make the most of these mutual goals.

Beyond looking for the right skills, McColl Center seeks a team member who supports our mission to put artists first, be a hub for creativity, and a catalyst for growth. We also seek team members who share and will contribute to the unique core values that make McColl Center such a great place to work: creativity, community, and collaboration.
