Delivering Innovation


This article presents opportunities that the politically inclined can enjoy, but excludes internships for elected officials. However, if you are interested in that type of internship, please visit for more information. Let us begin!

For the history buff:

New York Historical Society Student Historian Program

As someone who has completed this internship, I unequivocally endorse this internship. Unlike other internship programs, the N-YHS program is uniquely dedicated to furthering the education of its participants rather than assigning them menial tasks. If you are interested in learning more about history, further cultivating your research skills, and meeting other like-minded high school students, this internship is for you.

For the aspiring attorney:

1. New York County District Attorney’s Office High School Internship Program

The New York District Attorney’s Office Program is a six-week internship program that provides high school students the opportunity to witness the inner workings of the justice system. One of the great advantages of this program is that interns are paid a weekly stipend of $150. Teenagers who are interested in pursuing a career in public sector law will enjoy this experience.

2. Bronx County District Attorney’s Office Internship Program

Similar to the New York District Attorney’s Office Program. High school students who intern during the school year must do so for at least two half days per week. High school students doing an internship in the summer will be required to work Monday through Thursday, 9-4.

3. Thurgood Marshall Summer Law Program

The Thurgood Marshall program places motivated inner-city students at law firms during the summer. If you are a teenager looking for a political related law internship, this internship is for you!

4. Hispanic National Bar Foundation Legal Camp for Future Latino Leaders

The HNPBF Camp sends Latino students to Washington, DC for nine days at no cost to participants. Students may be current high school students or graduates.

For the future law enforcement officer:

1. FBI Volunteer Internship Program

The FBI Volunteer Program allows high school students to explore life within the Bureau, as well as future career opportunities in federal law enforcement. If you are a fan of NCIS or CSI, this internship experience will be great for you!

2. NYPD Law Enforcement Scouts

The NYPD Law Enforcement Explorer Program provides an opportunity for young men and women between the ages of 14 and 20 to work with members of their local police station. This program is part of the New York Police Department’s effort to foster better relations with the citizenry.
