Museum Internship Student Guide Program
at the Brooklyn Museum

The Brooklyn Museum’s Student Guide program trains college and graduate students to lead innovative tours of Brooklyn Museum collections and exhibitions and assist with Museum public programs. Students develop critical-thinking and communication skills while sharing their fresh and diverse perspectives with Museum visitors.

During this yearlong commitment, volunteer Student Guides:
– Receive training from Brooklyn Museum staff in museum education, research techniques, and presentation skills;
– Work to develop their critical thinking, teaching, and observation skills in gallery-based settings;
– Research and lead lively discussion-based tours for the general public in the Museum’s permanent collections and special exhibitions;
– Plan and implement a public program for university students;
– Assist with and evaluate the Brooklyn Museum’s public educational programming;
– Serve as student advisors for the Brooklyn Museum’s Education Division
Student Guides commit between seven and ten hours a week, which includes meetings on Wednesday evenings and Saturdays during the academic year as well as independent research time in the Brooklyn Museum galleries and at other institutions. Meetings begin in early October. This is an unpaid, volunteer position. Academic credit can be arranged.

Applications are due by September 28, 2011.
