SoundWaters internship program inspires high school and college students to make a difference in our local environment.

The Sound Interns program provides on-the-job skills training, mentoring, and research experience for students in high school and college. Interns are introduced to some of Long Island Sounds most precious habitats and the animals that live there.

During the internship program, students work alongside the SoundWaters Education team in our teaching aquarium, laboratory and in the field enhancing their knowledge of the Long Island Sound watershed. Interns will assist with teaching programs, IT and aquarium maintenance. Independent research opportunities (on SoundWaters long term research projects) are also available based on student experience and interest.

In 2012, a Sound Intern commented that: “this internship has taught me how to be an effective worker, and strengthened my communication and leadership abilities.  My experience has brought my abilities out, and built upon them.”

We are currently looking for motivated students to join our team. To apply for a space in the SoundInterns program please click on the application link below and submit it along with a resume.

Students must be 15 or older and currently enrolled in high school. Work permits are required for 15-year-olds. We are accepting applications for fall 2012.
