BNYDC’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 opportunities and resources of the Yard. As part of this mission, BNYDC is excited to announce our annual Summer Internship Program.
The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation’s Summer Internship Program connects graduating college-attending or college-bound undergraduate students to a wide range of work opportunities with businesses within the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Over the course of an 8-week session, students will be connected to Yard-based businesses and departments according to their future career interests, skillsets and educational background.
BNYDC’s Internship Program participants are exposed to real world work experiences, provided professional and career advisement, and opportunities to network with peers and a variety of business owners and industry leaders within the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
