Internship Program

The internship program connects Nueva upper school students with 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.

All our Nueva interns have been eager to learn, willing to listen, a pleasure to be around, and have really made an impact on our organization in a few short months. I highly encourage other non-profit organizations and companies to be a part of the Nueva School Internship Program.

I am beyond thrilled with the Nueva Internship Program. Our students continually went above and beyond my and our expectations. We are fans for life!

—Lauren WestonExecutive Director, Acterra

Our interns from Nueva have greatly exceeded our expectations. They have accomplished far more than we thought possible from high school students, providing meaningful contributions to our team, and also contributed to the team culture with their positive attitudes and excitement!
