During the summer of 2019 the New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC), in partnership with the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development (NYC DYCD), will offer a paid summer internship for forty (40) talented NYC high school students to work full-time in house at the New York City Department of Design and Construction.
The High School Summer Internship Program is designed for students interested in pursuing careers in architecture, engineering, building trades, public administration, business administration or information technology. The program is structured to enable students to gain exposure to the many careers in the built environment and to learn about what it takes to build NYC. It is a unique opportunity to prepare students for the growing demands of the job market.
Assignments may include AutoCAD (computer aided design) drafting for students interested in architecture or engineering, internet research, word processing,spreadsheet creation, and other clerical work. Students work for six weeks, (five days a week) in a program that combines hands-on work and educational programming.
