Summer 2015 Internships

The Neighborhood Preservation Center is offering two internships in summer 2015 for motivated individuals looking to gain experience in historic preservation and/or a non-profit environment. 

We are happy to work with students who would like to complete an internship for school credit. We make every effort to tailor internship experiences to fit an intern’s skills and interests.  There may be times when we ask for help with other projects going on in the office if more hands and assistance are needed. Internships are available for both students (undergraduate and graduate) and non-students.

Please send cover letter, specifying for which position you are applying , and resume to Kayte Handler by email info(at)neighborhoodpreservationcenter.org or by mail to: Neighborhood Preservation Center, 232 East 11th Street, New York, NY 10003.
