We partner our students with some of Newark’s leading institutions to place our students with organizations like the Abbott Leadership Institute, NJPAC, Newark Public Library, the City of Newark’s Department of Law, Rutgers University-Newark, Newark Public Radio, and many more.
Our students spend an entire school year interning 20-25 hours a month learning crucial skills that set them up for a lifetime of success.
And by working at organizations so central to the heart and soul of Newark, students gain a deeper understanding of their city and an appreciation for the people of their community.
Internships also allow students to make connections and develop skills that serve them well beyond the end of their placements.
