The New York A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute Summer Internship Program
The New York A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute Summer Internship Program is a competitive program for high school students from across New York. The internship is an incredibly valuable, enriching summer experience, and a gateway to a lifelong educational, professional and social network.
Interns are selected from a pool of New York A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute Peer Trainers. The Peer Training Program awards students the skills to respond to bias and prejudice. All interns are required to complete the Peer Training Program before applying for the internship. ADL interns assume various responsibilities within our offices. From researching hate crimes in Civil Rights to working on programming in Education, the opportunity for learning is endless. Once a week, interns attend sessions that focus on career building and the college application process.
One of the key elements of the internship experience is the opportunity to attend the ADL Grosfeld Family National Youth Leadership Mission to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. The theme of the trip is social justice. Interns continue to develop the knowledge, leadership skills, and advocacy tools that are needed to catalyze change in their communities.
At the completion of the internship, interns stay actively involved with the ADL and the A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute. Throughout the year, they attend reunions and retreats, and former interns are often asked to take a leadership role in shaping these programs.
