Spiral Q seeks federal work study students from surrounding universities to participate in our Apprenticeship Program. Students in this program gain robust exposure to all the working parts of an art and social change nonprofit organization, including art-based educational programming, marketing and public relations, fundraising and development, studio work, finance and administration, and more. Eligible students qualify for federal work study subsidies and are up for the challenge of doing meaningful work in a creative environment. Graduates of our apprenticeship program have gone onto work as artists, educators, nonprofit administrators, doctors, techies and more. To join our fearless, creative crew of apprentices, contact to learn more about our available apprenticeship positions, or visit your university’s work study office for more information about how to qualify or apply.


Apprenticeships are either

  • Paid through a student’s federal work-study grant
  • For college credit that you arrange with your institution
  • Volunteer

Upon acceptance into the apprenticeship program, all students must provide criminal background and child abuse clearances.
