The Museum provides unique learning experiences for students seeking to gain practical training related to their field of study or professional interests. Specific programs are geared to students in high school, university, professional schools, and the U.S. Military, Naval, and Air Force Academies.
The Lipper Internship is a semester-long, paid museum education internship for graduate and undergraduate students from across the Northeast that connects interns to local schools in order to teach about the Holocaust and Jewish heritage. The program begins with two weeks of training in New York City, where interns will meet with Museum staff and Holocaust survivors. Back in their college communities, interns share their knowledge by teaching public middle and high school students about the Holocaust, both through classroom visits and accompanying students and their teachers on visits to the Museum.
Deadlines: April 1 for Fall/November 1 for Spring
The Museum has general internships available to high school and university students that provide exposure to the programs and services provided by the Museum. Offered on a rolling basis according to departmental need, students can expect to volunteer in a broad range of capacities in support of the various functions of the Museum.
