High schoolers are invited to apply for the OSV Junior Intern program.

Learn about American history by experiencing first-hand early 19th-century rural New England life. Costumed Junior Interns help Village staff depict family life and childhood.

About the Program

Junior Interns commit to a schedule of at least 15 days (excluding two training days) between May and October.  The program is open to ages 14 – 17. Applicants must be at least 14 years old by September 1 of the year in which they will serve as interns. All Junior Interns are expected to attend orientation and training sessions, which are designed to prepare them to engage visitors and help lead activities in Village exhibits. They will also be required to do related readings. Junior Interns will be responsible for maintaining the costume issued to them.
