Summer Programs, Internships, Jobs, Interesting Opportunities

Every week during the school year we add to our list of amazing opportunities for your students – arts courses, STEM, portfolio building, community service opportunities – summer, year-round – there’s truly something for everyone! We’ll highlight the new ones here and then migrate them to the full list on our website.

Networking | Mentoring Opportunities

We are building a list of alumni who are interested in providing informal guidance or mentoring to current LaGuardia students.

We will be using the list to help make the introductions, starting this academic year.

Parents of NY Teens & Young Adults

This is a place for parents of teens and young adults located in all five boroughs to come together and openly discuss the trials and tribulations of raising teens in this crazy city… where else can a teen travel as far as from Coney Island to the Bronx for only $2.75!
Homework, high schools, college, leaving the nest and more! … discuss it all here! I encourage an open and honest discussion with no flaming or attitude! Note that the group is lightly moderated. Join the group.

Check out the blog with lots of school & tutor reviews.

A Westside Experiment | Young Actors Laboratory

Dates: July 5-9, 12-17, 2021, 10 am–3 pm
Performance: Sat. July 17, 2021 11am

Location: In Person and Remote Hybrid Model. Reach out for more details.
As the parent of a theatrically inclined adolescent, IRT’s Westside Experiment summer theater program was everything I could have hoped for. The program’s adult staff never underestimated the creative abilities of the youth, and provided them with the support and skills necessary to imagine, design and perform a remarkably sophisticated multi-media theatrical experience. My daughter made many friends over the 2 weeks of the program and was able to stretch her theatrical muscles in ways she never imagined, and thoroughly enjoyed.
For Ages 13–17
For more information, contact IRT: 212-206-6875 or


City Year Americorps

Teens in Politics

Teens in Politics was founded with the goal of helping motivated teenagers obtain political internships. There are very few resources that are available for teenagers to learn about politics, or to assist offices in filling political internship positions. We offer the opportunity for students and young adults to experience the world of politics and get a head start on their political career. We display the latest internship positions for high school students in the New York area. Learn more!


Youth Leadership Councils

Application Deadline: Ongoing
Applications for the 2020-2021 Youth Leadership Councils (YLC) program year are now open for students 14 – 21 years old.

YLCs are the place where youth can make change happen in their neighborhood, school, or borough. Councils across the City need high school students to share their stories, passions, and ideas-if you know of any youth who want to make a difference, we need them on a Youth Leadership Council. Youth will have the opportunity to team up with peers from their neighborhood or school and develop the tools and skills to put their ideas into action.
