Internships

City Parks Foundation offers internship opportunities and apprenticeships each year for high school and college students.

These opportunities connect students to tangible work and life skills as they work alongside our staff to teach younger students in our gardens, lead marine ecology lessons, support SummerStage programming, and provide logistical support to our team.

Our staff works with all interns throughout their experience to support and encourage their self-confidence and identify the next steps on their paths to a successful future.
