If you are a high school student, DOROT’s Manhattan Summer Teen Internship Program offers two distinct four-week sessions for your consideration. We select 22 interns for each session.
In Summer 2023 the internship will be a hybrid; two to three days a week in-person and one or two days will be virtual. Interns will need to travel to their internship location.
Applications for Manhattan Internships are now open!
