High School Internships

Internships offered by the Volunteer Programs and Internships Office are designed for applicants who are college-level and up. Students under age 18 living in Boston and Cambridge can apply to be a paid summer teen intern through our Teen Programs.

The Summer Teen Internship Program is a great opportunity for teens to challenge themselves and learn useful skills while having fun and meeting new friends. The Aquarium offers paid and volunteer summer internships for Boston, Cambridge and suburban youth for one week of training and six weeks of work in July and August.
