PAID INTERNSHIP-Museum of Jewish Heritage-A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

MUSEUM OF JEWISH HERITAGE ­ A LIVING MEMORIAL TO THE HOLOCAUST

PAID INTERNSHIP ­ Learn, Teach, and Inspire

The Lipper Internship brings together graduate and undergraduate students
from across the Northeast to train in New York City for a semester-long
internship in museum education. As a Lipper Intern you will come to the
Museum in New York City for ten days to learn the moving story of 20th
century Jewish life and the Holocaust. Upon returning to your college
campus for the semester, you will teach students in local classrooms and
lead them on trips to the Museum. Through the Lipper Internship, college
undergraduate and graduate participants of all ages and backgrounds will
inspire students across the Northeast with universal messages of memory,
justice, and hope.

How does the program work?
· Training: Prior to the fall or spring semester, Interns attend an
intensive ten-day training period at the Museum in New York City. During
training, Interns meet with Museum staff, hear testimony from Holocaust
survivors, and learn methods for teaching from artifacts in the Museum¹s
collection. Lodging is provided, if necessary.

· Teaching: Following training, Interns teach with a partner at a
minimum of three public schools (middle and/or high schools) in their
college region. Each school participates in a three-part program, including
an introductory lesson in the classroom, a visit to the Museum, and a final
classroom discussion about the lessons of the program. Interns receive a
stipend and are reimbursed for travel expenses.
