During the summer of 2016, the New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC), in partnership with the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development and School Construction Authority, will offer a combined program for one hundred fifty talented NYC high school students to work full-time during their summer break. This application is for those interested in applying for one of the forty internship opportunities available in-house at DDC.
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 New York City. 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 five days per week, in a six-week program that combines hands-on work and educational programming.
