High School Junior Staff Internship Programs

High school students from all over New York City work together alongside museum staff to explore community, technology and education at CMOM. Through experiences that focus on youth development and building 21st century skills, Junior Staff Interns grow into valued members of the CMOM team and the New York City community.
 
High school students who have interests in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), the arts or working with children will find a welcoming community to explore and grow. Each intern develops their interests into real work experience and skills that prepare them for college and careers. Students start off as volunteers and as they gain more experience, they earn an ascending stipend.

Families will be inspired to create artwork by the emotions felt when listening to Jazz.

Explore how your mood is affected by musical elements such as key, melody, harmony and tempo, using a piece of historic sheet music as your canvas.
This program is part of our "Jazzed!: The Changing Beat of 125th Street" exhibit and takes place on the lower level.
