A paid museum internship for NYC DOE high school students
Applications due November 15, 2022
New York City public and charter school students are invited to apply now for a paid, in-depth internship to learn about different cultures, history, and making a difference. Participating students will gain professional experience through working in the Museum.

SUMMER EMPLOYMENT: Apprentices have part-time (four days a week) paid positions at the Museum, from the end of June until mid-August. Through a close mentoring relationship with staff, Apprentices explore careers in different departments at the Museum, as well as hear Holocaust survivor testimony, go on field trips, and get to know students from schools across the city.

The Ranger Conservation Corps Internship
The Ranger Conservation Corps is a great urban environmental internship for high school students who are interested in the natural world or environmental issues.
Our Ranger Conservation Corps interns gain experience while working with the Urban Park Rangers on environmental restoration in natural areas in our flagship parks. Participants may go on exciting field trips including canoeing, overnight camping, and more. Interns receive community service hours, and the experience looks great on a college application!
We offer two Ranger Conservation Corps sessions each year (in the fall and spring), and each session lasts approximately eight (8) weeks. The program occurs one day a week, on a school day afternoon for 2 to 2.5 hours.
How to Apply
Ranger Conservation Corps session dates are flexible and registration is on a rolling basis year round.
If you're interested in applying to the Ranger Conservation Corps, the first step is to contact the Ranger Conservation Corps. Our Urban Park Rangers will work with you to get you placed at a park location with a schedule that works for you.
