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 increase their confidence and independence, Junior Staff Interns grow into valued members of the CMOM team.
 
Interns begin with broad interests in technology, the arts or working with children. Each intern develops their interests into real work experience and skill sets that prepare them for college and careers. Students start off as volunteers, and as they gain more experience, they earn an ascending stipend. View previous years' projects on the Junior Staff Internship Program Website.

College and Graduate School Internships

Direct experience observing and working with children is an important ingredient in the development of talented educators and designers. Internships provide an opportunity for applied learning and real work experience.

Students, graduate students and recent graduates are placed in internships where their resume and course work correlate well with current museum projects. Past interns have done research for upcoming exhibitions, designed exhibition components, designed graphic materials, developed curriculum and taught special programs.

CMOM partners with colleges and universities to provide credited internships in a variety of disciplines including education, exhibition design and development. CMOM hosts students from a variety of institutions including, New York University, Bank Street College, Barnard College, Teacher’s College at Columbia, Columbia University, Hunter’s College and the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Over the summer, CMOM hosts up to 20 interns from across the country and around the world in CMOM's education internship.
