Gallery Educator Internship
A paid museum teaching internship for
NYC undergraduate and graduate students
Applications due February 15, 2023 by 5 PM ET
Apply now for a paid internship teaching the history of the Holocaust in a museum gallery setting.
The Gallery Educator Internship at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in Lower Manhattan prepares NYC college and university students to lead tours of the Museum’s core exhibition for public, middle, and high school students.
In late February, Interns will attend trainings at the Museum to learn the tour material and familiarize themselves with the exhibition, “The Holocaust: What Hate Can Do.” During training Interns will meet with Museum staff, hear testimony from Holocaust survivors, and learn methods for teaching from artifacts.
Interns will be paid $30 per tour and are paid for two hours of travel time, totaling $60 for each on-site session. Interns may choose to work for school credit rather than pay. For Interns, the program provides a growth opportunity and hands-on teaching experience.
ELIGIBILITY: Currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students of all backgrounds and academic interests are encouraged to apply. The Internship is designed for students from a variety of fields and backgrounds. The ideal candidate will have a desire to learn and educate, an appreciation for museums, and an ability to work well with others. No previous teaching or Holocaust study is required, although both of these are desirable. Applicants must have a minimum of one weekday morning available to lead tours weekly through May, although more availability is also welcome.
