The Museum offers internship programs for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students throughout the year. Interns work onsite at the Museum, though some of our internship programs combine onsite work with programs in other educational settings.

High School Apprenticeship Program

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.

Applications for the 2018 High School Apprenticeship Program are available now in PDF format or online.

Holocaust Educator Internship

The Holocaust Educator Internship is a paid internship program at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York City for undergraduate and graduate students currently studying in the New York metropolitan area. Interns are trained on how to teach the history of the Holocaust and then work with middle and high school students in public schools to understand this history. Interns receive in-depth training about the history of the Holocaust, teaching methodologies, and then teach students about the Holocaust so that the painful lessons of the past can guide them to envision a world worthy of their futures.

Details, including application timeline and internship dates, are available here.

Applications are due by April 2, 2018 at mjhnyc.org/internship2018.
