Museum Education Internship Program Each year, the Brooklyn Museum offers a ten-month paid internship program (September through June) for college graduates interested in teaching diverse audiences. Intern Educators receive intensive training in museum-education philosophy and practice from Museum staff members who monitor, observe, and guide their professional development. Intern educators lead the majority of the Museum’s Guided Gallery Visits for school groups and play an integral role in the planning and implementation of educational programs for school, youth, family, and adult audiences. Regularly scheduled seminars introduce interns to other Brooklyn Museum departments and to education programs at other New York museums. Student Guides The Student Guide program trains high-school, college, and graduate students to lead conversational tours of Brooklyn Museum collections and exhibitions. During this yearlong commitment, students develop critical-thinking and communication skills while sharing their fresh and diverse perspectives with Museum visitors. The initial eight-week training period begins in September. Applications are accepted year-round. Contact academic.programs@brooklynmuseum.org or (718) 501-6214 for more information
