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.
