Our Internship Program provides experiential learning opportunities for high school students. Thanks to the generosity of parents, alumni, and members of the greater Manhattan business community, Dwight students have internships or shadow professionals in a wide range of settings.

Students observe the workplace routine, join in the activities of that day, and sit down with their sponsor to ask questions and learn more about the dimensions of the career. Sponsors consistently emphasize how impressed they are by Dwight students and their maturity and intellectual curiosity. To help Dwight’s Internship Program build on its success, we seek the support of our community, in particular, our parents and alums, who can offer shadowing and internships.


Students intern with a sponsor, developing new skills in a field of interest for a longer period of time. They work closely with a mentor, not only learning the demands of the job, but also actively participating in meetings and projects. The duration of an internship varies.



Students shadow a member of the business community for a single day. They meet and spend the day with a professional in a field of their interest, observing the mentor’s daily routine, interactions, and responsibilities.

If you or someone you know would be interested in sponsoring one (or more) of our top-notch Dwight students, please contact Shauna Fitzmahan, Internship Coordinator, via and complete the form below.
