Internship Program

The Internship Program connects Nueva students with Bay Area organizations for one- to eight-week engagements. The internship programs span fields including technology, research, politics, medicine, publishing, fine arts and more.

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. Students develop a Statement of Purpose 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.

Nueva has partnered with over 55 organizations, including ABC 7 (KGO-TV), Betabrand, Boosted Boards, California Academy of Sciences, Center for Childhood Creativity, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Playground Global, SF 49ers, Smule, Soraa, Stanford, TaskRabbit, UC Berkeley, UCSF, Unicef, Yahoo, Wikimedia, and YMCA of San Francisco.
