Internships

We’re committed to finding New Yorkers with big dreams and cultivating them into the industry leaders of the future through our immersive, intensive, and inclusive internship program.

We’re committed to finding New Yorkers with big dreams and cultivating them into the industry leaders of the future through our immersive, intensive, and inclusive internship program.

About the program

Through our paid professional development program, we help interns kick-start their dream careers. Our 14-week program includes work readiness and career planning services at the High Line. Following the onsite program, we continue to actively support our interns, offering 12 months of mentorship services as they begin their careers as leaders in their chosen fields.

Interns in the program benefit from:

  • Meaningful work with High Line staff, up to full-time.
  • Career readiness sessions covering topics like personal branding, job search, interviewing, public speaking, conflict resolution, and more.
  • Individual career counseling sessions, including career planning, resume and cover letter writing, and job search support.
  • A tailored professional development plan, with recommendations for certifications, courses, conference attendance, professional memberships, and other opportunities.
  • Fun, cohort-building activities with other interns—Escape Room, museum crawls, gardening on the High Line, and bowling.
  • Professional headshots, personalized stationery, and an updated portfolio as appropriate for each intern’s industry.

Each year, we host three cohorts of 4–5 interns each, starting in January, May, and September. Applications are posted on our careers page 60 days prior to the start date.

Who can participate?

We aim to make our program as equitable and accessible as possible for New Yorkers. In this spirit, our program only has four requirements to apply. Interns must:

  • Have a High School Diploma (or equivalent).
  • Be a new entrant into the workforce and/or a specific field.
  • Be able to commit to the entire 14-week program for at least 20 hours per week.
  • Have shown a commitment to personal excellence through grades, community service, innovation, and/or other personal accomplishments.

We make an effort to select interns based on equity and representation as related to a specific role and industry.

'' The High Line's Internship Program not only helped me grow as a professional but also as an individual. I have become more patient, understanding, and confident in everything that I do.'
