The Lipper Internship is an outstanding opportunity for college students in a variety of fields and from a variety of backgrounds. Interns in the program participate in a ten-day training course in New York City conducted by Museum staff and scholars. Following training, Interns work throughout the semester with middle and high school students in their university communities. Each Intern conducts classroom visits to teach the chronology of the Holocaust, leads the classes through tours of the Museum, and then returns to the classes for post-visit sessions to reinforce and expand upon what the students have learned. This is a paid, semester-long internship with the opportunity for students to remain connected even after the semester has ended.
The application deadline for the Fall 2010 semester of the Lipper Internship Program is April 1, 2010. Interested students may contact me directly at (646) 437-4273 for more information, or visit our website at http://www.mjhnyc.org/documents/LipperApplication.pdf to download an application.
