High School Internships

March 8, 2017


Riveted by tales of the high seas? Intrigued by untold local history?  Called to museums and their backstage? Want to learn professional skill from experienced staff?

If you are or know a student in grade 9 through 12 who is interested in any of those questions then our program is here!  We are launching a new take on our internship program to teach students local history while coaching them professional skills. This internship is a chance for students to add a valuable experience to their transcript and to create a great memory for themselves, their families, friends and school.  Once selected, our interns will train alongside experienced guides, museum staff, and docents.  They will also have the opportunity to propose and create a project showcasing their individual skills, such as a museum tour, a presentation, or a small exhibit in the museum.
