The internship program connects Nueva students with Bay Area organizations for one- to eight-week engagements. Internship program opportunities span fields including technology, research, politics, medicine, publishing, fine arts, and more.
We match eligible 10th through 12th grade students with participating organizations in both paid and unpaid internships that span from one to eight weeks. Employers decide the commitment and position description that will best meet their needs. Students write a cover letter that reflects their understanding of the organization's mission and serves as a proposal for the ways this student can contribute to a workplace environment.
As interns, students arrive ready to collaborate and work with a team. Nueva students are creative, industrious, critical thinkers trained in design thinking methodology and social-emotional learning. We prepare interns to succeed in the organization through workplace readiness workshops and will stay in touch with the employers throughout the process.

We had…a Nueva intern working with our team on a large project. She blew us away, providing thorough and thoughtful research and recommendations.
—Leslie Garvin, Senior Program Director at Stanford’s Haas Center for Public Service
The team got far more out of the experience than we expected, both in terms of work and also just the effect of having the students around.
—Lacey Kitch, Director of Informatics at the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy
The interns contribute much to our organization, and their passionate curiosity clearly shines bright.
