Students have an opportunity to participate in work-based learning internships supported by the New York City Department of Education.
Students are interviewed by preservation and design professionals from all five boroughs, and those selected complete a 6-week internship. Interns have been hosted at historic house museums, Green-Wood Cemetery, architecture and engineering firms, Park Avenue Armory, and many other organizations. WMF has hosted interns, as well as supported the internship program for many years. Here, a intern practices his craft at the Pellettieri Stone Carvers’ Academy.
