A Win-Win Partnership

Upper School students doing research in a laboratory

The Nueva Internship Program connects gifted, passionate students with Bay Area organizations for 1 to 12–week engagements, spanning the fields of technology, research, politics, medicine, publishing, fine arts and more. To ensure most effective placements, every student develops a Statement of Purpose that reflects their understanding of the organization's mission, a tangible proposal for contributing to that organization's success, as well as personal qualifications.

A Unique Talent Pool

As interns, students arrive ready to develop empathy, collaborate, and work with a team. Nueva students are creative, industrious, critical thinkers trained in design thinking methodology and social emotional learning.
