Kate Fennell

Director of School Operations, Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Metcalf Intern 2007 (producing), Necessary Angel Theatre Company

More than 18 years after the launch of the program, it is particularly rewarding to see early Metcalf interns become mentors themselves, passing on their knowledge to another group of emerging leaders.

Sandy Houston

President and CEO, Metcalf Foundation

Without the internship, there’s no way I could have been in the job I have now, no way.

Evelyn Campbell

Schedule Coordinator, The National Ballet School, Metcalf Intern 2008 (production), Opera Atelier
