paid summer job for teens

IPAY's programing is focused solely on performance for young people. Every year, IPAY puts out a call for internationally touring performances for young audiences. We then hold a selection panel made up of professional artists and programmers, and the highest-ranking shows are booked to perform around the world. CultureCrew was created in order to bring the voices of youth into our selection process. CultureCrew Members and Ambassadors will add their voice by reviewing a selection of the submitted works and giving critical feedback. Their responses will contribute to our annual Showcase held in Philadelphia. IPAY's CultureCrew will influence which live performances are put on stage for thousands of young people to see for years to come!

International Exchange

There will be additional opportunities for the IPAY CultureCrew to collaborate with other CultureCrews from New York, Ireland, Denmark, and Scotland.
