How many hours a week will I work?
Interns work from 20-40 hours/week depending on their schedules. This will be determined individually with each intern. We prefer our intern’s schedules to be within 9:30 – 6:00pm Monday – Friday.

All of our internships are located at our office in New York City at 419 Lafayette St.
Are internships paid?
In general, internships are paid a stipend. PPS interns will also gain significant experiences, networking skills, and insight into potential career paths. PPS relies on interns to work in teams with PPS staff to produce substantial work.
School credit is also available upon request.
What skills will I gain?
Interns gain a better understanding of Placemaking and ways to engage stakeholders in a community visioning and planning process. Specific skill sets such as research, writing, and design can also be enhanced.
Are only students eligible for an internship?
We offer internships to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates, professionals, and other qualified candidates.
Do you accept interns from international applicants?
We do accept applications internationally, however we are unable to provide Visas. Non-US citizens must provide their own Visas that permit them to work or volunteer in the United States.
When will I hear whether or not I was selected as an intern?
Due to the high volume of applications that we receive for our internships, we are unable to respond to everyone and will only be able to respond to applicants invited for an interview. We will do our best to respond to as many submissions as possible.
