High School Junior Staff Internship Programs

High school students from all over New York City work together alongside museum staff to explore community, technology and education at CMOM. Through experiences that focus on youth development and building 21st century skills, Junior Staff Interns grow into valued members of the CMOM team and the New York City community.
 
High school students who have interests in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), the arts or working with children will find a welcoming community to explore and grow. Each intern develops their interests into real work experience and skills that prepare them for college and careers. Students start off as volunteers and as they gain more experience, they earn an ascending stipend.

Duke Ellington: Big Band Instrument Making, 10:00am

All ages

10am - 4:45pm
Edward “Duke” Ellington was not only a talented jazz performer, but also a composer and the conductor of his own Big Band. Many of the famous pieces of jazz we know today – known as ‘standards’ – were written by Duke for his band, and for the specific talents of his musicians. Inspired by the individual style of these talented performers, build your own musical instruments similar to the ones you hear in Duke Ellington’s music.
This program is part of our "Jazzed!: The Changing Beat of 125th Street" exhibit and takes place on the lower level.
