Be a history changemaker. Use the resources of New-York Historical to conduct teen-led research on under told yet highly relevant histories, on topics you care about. Learn about the history of activists and social movements and discuss how knowledge of history can inform change-making in the present.
Work with historian mentors and take trips to history archives around the city to help support your work. Develop leadership skills as you lead gallery tours and produce creative digital projects that cover culturally representative stories that aren’t well represented in our history books today.
Open to: High school students, entering grades 10, 11, or 12.
Interns who attend a Title 1 School or are eligible for free or reduced lunch will be offered a stipend to participate. Unpaid internships will be provided for all other accepted students, with the option to receive community service hours or school credit. We anticipate that we’re going to be virtual, but it’s possible that we will be in person. We accept 25 interns per cohort.
