The Holocaust Educator School Partnership is a paid internship program at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York City for undergraduate and graduate students currently studying in the New York metropolitan area. Interns are trained on how to teach the history of the Holocaust and then work with middle and high school students in public schools to understand this history.

During training interns meet with Museum staff, hear testimony from Holocaust survivors, and learn methods for teaching from artifacts in the Museum’s collection. Following training, interns work in pairs, visiting several New York metropolitan-area middle and high schools to teach an introductory classroom lesson and then give tours to these classes at the Museum.

Interns receive payment at the end of the semester.
