Need Summer Interns? NYC Based Companies Please Apply

The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment
(MOME) are joining forces to create 100 career-making opportunities within New York’s media and
entertainment industries. As part of the new public-private Media & Entertainment Momentum Fund, MOME and The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York have pledged to provide financing for 100 paid summer internships within local small to mid-scale media firms and entertainment industry businesses.

This partnership builds upon the success of NYC Ladders for Leaders, a nationally recognized program that places a diverse mix of our city’s best and brightest high school and undergraduate college students into paid, professional summer internships with employers citywide.

Each candidate is placed following a competitive application and selection process, and all selected participants receive 30 hours of pre-employment training. More than a third of the interns that participated last year received offers of ongoing employment, and 98 percent of employers reported a positive experience.

If your organization would like information on having a funded Ladders for Leaders intern this summer, please contact Shira Gans at MOME, [email protected].
