Shore Corps is a leadership program for local high school students ages 14-19 focused on STEM curriculum. The paid internships are limited to (10- 15) positions per cycle (Spring, Fall, Summer) and are designed to give high school students a greater level of choice, responsibility and challenge.
The program serves as a platform for teens to cultivate a road map for their high school and post-high school journey, demonstrate leadership skills and inspire other young people in their community.
Students will get hands on experience working on environmental stewardship/shoreline restoration projects, as well as community planning projects to support a more active and resilient community. Students will take field trips to meet professionals who have shaped the City of New York through planning, design and innovation.
Many students who have participated in this program have gone on to pursue fields of study in science, engineering and design through their work with professionals in these careers. Students will spend time working with RWA staff on college prep and career guidance in related fields.
