The Museum offers two formal internship programs in which schools can participate.
High School Apprenticeship Program
Public high school students from New York City participate in a challenging program of study and work at the Museum. After an extensive spring training, Apprentices work full-time during the summer leading 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. Learn more about the program.
High School Staff: If you would like materials to inform your high school students about this program, please contact Bonnie Unger at 646.437.4303 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The High School Apprenticeship is generously funded by Altman Foundation, The Clark Foundation, The Pinkerton Foundation, The Slomo and Cindy Silvian Foundation, Inc., and the Zoffer Family Endowment.
Lipper Intern School Partnership Program
Public middle and high schools can arrange to have a college-age Museum Intern enhance their classes' curriculum free of charge with a three-part introductory Holocaust education program. Through the Lipper Intern School Partnership Program, the Museum's college interns conduct a pre-visit session in the classroom, guide the students through the Museum where the students learn firsthand from our exhibitions, and follow up with a post-visit session in the classroom. This program is available on a limited basis. Learn more about the program.
For more information or to schedule your Lipper School Partnership Program, please contact Lipperinterns@mjhnyc.org or 646.437.4273.
The cost of admission, transportation, and workbooks for a limited number of partner schools each semester is covered by a generous grant from the EGL Charitable Foundation with support from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany: Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education.
