Starting in 2024, Detroit and New Orleans will be added to the seven US cities where Bloomberg Philanthropies has placed more than 1,700 high school and college students in paid summer internships in the cultural sector over the past 12 years, the New York Times reports.

Baltimore, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, will also see an expansion of the program, Bloomberg Philanthropies announced Tuesday.

The Bloomberg Arts Internship program connects high school and college students with paid internships at more than 150 cultural institutions.

"By expanding Bloomberg Arts program to Detroit and New Orleans, more talented young people will gain access to valuable skills that will empower them to pursue careers in the arts," Bloomberg Philanthropies CEO Patricia E.

Harris says in a press release.

The program, which started in New York City in 1999 and has grown to serve more than thousands of students, helps students "develop skills, including communication, problem-solving, and team building, that are essential for any professional field while encouraging awareness of culture as an industry and a civic resource," according to the press release.

For the first time this summer, some of the work sites will be for-profit institutions aligned with the program's mission, the Times reports.
