Teen Internship Program (15-18 year olds)

Our Teen Internship Program (for 15-18 year olds) provides a unique, hands-on experience in the fields of education or journalism. Our internships are designed to engage students in a field they may want to pursue after high school. Teaching Assistant Interns have the freedom to choose which camps they’d most like to work with, and The Interview Project Interns are encouraged to develop their own unique journalistic stories.

Each internship offers community service hours and can be listed on resumes. No prior experience is necessary.

The Interview Project

July 8 – 10
1 to 4 p.m.
with Lisa Hartsgrove

During this internship, you interview and write stories about people of interest in your community―whoever intrigues you―from your neighbor to a local business owner to the mayor. Inspired by “Humans of New York,” this project has you finding and sharing stories that need to be told, ones that will touch the lives of others. During the training, we teach you essential journalism skills, such as interviewing, selecting important details, and writing a compelling narrative. The goal is to provide completed stories to give to the participants and their families. This is an unpaid internship, but you can receive community service credit for your participation. To apply, fill out this application and send it to info@projectwritenow.org by June 15. Limited to eight participants.
