HSAPs in front of Jackie Robinson Museum display
High School Apprentices discuss museum display on a visit to the Jackie Robinson Museum.

The  High School Apprenticeship Program offers New York City public high school students a challenging program of study and work designed to give them a behind-the-scenes look at what it is like to work in the Museum and explore Jewish heritage and their own. After an extensive spring training, Apprentices work part-time (four days per week, Monday – Thursday from 10 AM – 3 PM) during the summer in different Museum departments and are introduced to the curatorial, educational, administrative, and operational sides of the Museum. Apprentices are paid for their participation in the program. Students of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Applications for the 2024 High School Apprenticeship Program are now closed. The application for Spring-Summer 2025 will open in fall of 2024.
