4/15 deadline: Brooklyn Navy Yard Summer Internship Program

bklyn-nvy-ydBNYDC’s mission is to fuel New York City’s economic vitality by creating and preserving quality jobs, growing the City’s modern industrial sector and its businesses, and connecting the local community with the economic opportunity and resources of the Yard. As part of this mission, BNYDC is excited to welcome our third group of local students to our Summer Internship Program.

The BNYDC Summer Internship Program connects college-attending or college-bound young adults with Navy Yard-based businesses for 8 week summer internships. The Summer Internship Program gives students an opportunity to gain real work experience, exposure to the Brooklyn Navy Yard and the industrial sector, and the opportunity to earn a salary during the summer that may supplement their college costs.

Program Outline:

  • Interns are matched by the BNYDC with a Navy Yard-based business. These will include manufacturing, design, media, and technology based businesses. Navy Yard businesses will provide each student with a meaningful work experience.

  • Interns are expected to demonstrate exceptional work ethic and professionalism at all times while being employed by BNYDC. At the end of the program, employers will submit an intern evaluation.

  • Internship roles are primarily administrative support roles. For interns with previous experience, there may be an opportunity to be matched into specialized roles.

  • Two sessions are available to accepted interns. Each student is required to choose only one (1) session in which he/she will participate in.

    •     Session 1:  June 5, 2017 to July 28, 2017

    •     Session 2:  June 26, 2017 to August 18, 2017 (graduating high school seniors from public schools will have a late start on June 29, 2017 since their classes end the previous day)

  • Before the start of their session, all interns must attend a BNYDC Internship Orientation Session.

  • All interns commit to a 40 hour work week with a one hour unpaid lunch break each day. This totals to 35 paid hours each week.

  • All interns are compensated at $11/hr.


  • Interns are selected based on their demonstration of strong communication skills, work ethic, and track record of commitment and achievement.

  • Students must be able to present documentation that indicates their current enrollment in a college program or admission to a college.

  • If under 18, working papers must be provided. Working papers can be obtained from your school.


  • Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. The deadline for all applications is April 15, 2017.

  • Limited internships are available, so applications should be sent in as soon as possible. Applicants accepted earlier in the process will have greater likelihood of matching to an internship role in their desired field(s).

  • To apply:

    • Complete the application form and a resume, and send both to SummerInternship@BrooklynNavyYard.org. If needed, you may also mail your application and resume to Summer Internship Program, Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation, Unit 300, Brooklyn, NY 11205.

    • Once your application is received, we will reach out to you via email to schedule an interview.

This is a wonderful opportunity for college students and businesses on the Yard, and we are looking forward to hearing from you! Please email any questions to SummerInternship@BrooklynNavyYard.org.
