Internship Program Application
Thank you for your interest in the Futures and Options Internship program. Students in our internship program participate in paid, mentored internships at a diverse group of private and nonprofit businesses in New York City.
Please read the following information about the program including what is expected of our students and what our students may expect from Futures and Options, and then complete the Internship Program Application.
Futures and Options staff works to place students at sites that best match their interests and skills. Once a potential internship placement is identified, students will interview with the supervisor at the selected job site. In some cases, students will interview at several sites.
Internship Placement: During the school year, students can work up to five days a week for a maximum of 15 hours. During the summer, students can work a total of 35 hours per week. All internships are paid. The specific hours are determined by each site supervisor and each student's schedule. Students are expected to be on time each day and work the required number of hours. The appropriate attire is dependent on each internship site and the supervisor's guidelines.
Our monthly workshops provide professional and career development and on-going support for our interns. Interns have the opportunity to share ideas and learn from each other's internship experience. Attendance is required and students are excused from their job to attend. Interns are invited to attend college guidance workshops throughout the year.
Before completing the internship application, please read the How To Apply page.
