For any questions contact Claudia Encinas at claudia@heifetzinstitute.org.

We offer competitive pay for all summer positions, including stipends for internships. Housing and dining hall meals are provided as part of the compensation package for all summer staff and interns. Our internships meet the requirements of most programs resulting in college credit. International students with or seeking CPT or OPT are encouraged to apply for both internships and contract jobs. Resident Assistants live in single rooms in the student halls they are leading; other employees are housed in a staff dormitory in single, air-conditioned rooms in a central, convenient location on the campus of Mary Baldwin University. Parking is abundant and free of charge.
Being a staff member during our summer program and Festival of Concerts is an all-in proposition. Plan to work long, often demanding hours, to enjoy extraordinary camaraderie with your fellow staff members, to revel in some of the best music making going on anywhere in the world, and to gain immense practical and artistic experience.

Important notes for potential summer staff:

  • There are limited opportunities for time off during the employment contract period. If you know you must be away from the Institute for any reason during the summer (for a wedding or family reunion, for example) please advise us during your interview so we can plan accordingly.
  • We perform background checks on all staff members.

Volunteer Opportunities

Would you like to step out of the audience and step into a supporting role behind the scenes? Volunteers are needed primarily during June, July, and August, but we also use some round-the-year help in our downtown Staunton, VA gift shop and our Heifetz On Tour activities. Our volunteers provide a variety of services, ranging from ushering at concerts to transporting our faculty and guest artists to and from regional airports during the six-week summer Festival of Concerts. If you’d like to contribute your time and talents to the Institute, let’s talk! Please email claudia@heifetzinstitute.org, or call our office at 540.907.4446.
