Music Forward and Northwell are partnering to inspire and prepare a diverse cohort of next-generation music industry leaders in Jones Beach. Together, Music Forward and Northwell will provide once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for graduating high school seniors and first-year college students to explore and prepare for a career in live music.  The partnership will create a new 6-week paid summer internship program at the iconic, 15,000-seat amphitheater Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater, along with additional venue tours and exploration panels for larger groups of students. 

The program will bridge BIPOC youth to the music industry where they will receive hands-on training and job shadows in venue careers, mentorship, and workshops focused on career readiness.
