Summer High School Internship Program, The Metropolitan Museum of Art

If you are a student at a New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut high school or home school and are in grade 11 or 12 during the school year prior to the internship, you can join other teens for a paid five-week program that will take you behind the scenes, connect you with Museum staff, and help you develop professional skills and experience. Students who are juniors and seniors during the school year prior to the internship, and who attend a high school or home school in or reside in New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut, can apply for an unpaid opportunity to connect with Museum staff as they develop professional skills for 50 to 100 hours during the summer.
