Student Life
Winter Internship


Explore. Learn. Serve.

Winter Internship is an immersion in experiential learning. For two weeks, the entire metropolitan area and beyond is our classroom: museums and music venues, hospitals and senior centers, embassies and congressional offices, colleges and universities, restaurants and soup kitchens. Students may choose internships in a wide variety of areas including the arts, business, community service, education, government, law, and science.

Upper school students can also audition to work full time on Field's winter drama production, or join a faculty-sponsored trip. Sixth graders have a special, structured group experience.

Grade-Level Training

Every year within the Winter Internship meeting framework, every grade level has a focused training session. These sessions are a central part of the Winter Internship curriculum, teaching students a variety of skills and exposing them to real-world and career-related issues over the course of their internships at Field. Specific grade level trainings are:

Seventh, eighth, and ninth grade students
are trained in telephone techniques for calling potential host organizations.
10th graders are trained in interview skills.
11th graders receive training in resume writing. Each junior student completes a resume as part of his or her Winter Internship follow-up project.
Seniors meet individually with their faculty mentor to explore and discuss a suitable senior-level internship, and to further explore internship and/or career interests.
