Each year, the NYC School Construction Authority offers a Summer Internship Program (“SIP”) for 125 college-bound NYC public high school students. SIP is designed to provide students with exposure to a wide range of careers within the public and private sectors. This is accomplished through a paid, six-week internship at the SCA or with one of our business partners throughout New York City. Assignments may include reviewing drawings and specifications, drafting for students with AutoCAD proficiency, attending meetings, participating in limited supervised construction visits, internet research, word processing, spreadsheet creation, along with other clerical and administrative work. Students spend four days with their intern host and the remaining day attending educational programming. Please distribute the attached program flyer and recommendation form to eligible students this week if possible. No more than five students per school will be selected to maintain program diversity.
Students recommended for SIP are expected to meet the following eligibility criteria:
Be a New York City public high school current sophomore, junior or senior;
