High School Apprenticeship Program

Onsite at the Museum of Jewish Heritage

The High School Apprenticeship Program offers New York City public high school students a challenging program of study and work designed to give them a behind-the-scenes look at what it is like to work in the Museum and explore Jewish heritage and their own. After an extensive spring training, Apprentices work full-time during the summer in different Museum departments; lead tours, and are introduced to the curatorial, educational, administrative, and operational sides of the Museum. Apprentices are paid for their participation in the program. Students of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
