New York Public Radio is partnering with Scholarship Plus to give our students paid internships between high school and college at the headquarters of this outstanding public radio producer and broadcaster. Students work with development officers, administrators and human-resources executives, developing work and people skills surrounded by interesting and dedicated staff members. As part of the program, each student is assigned a mentor from New York Public Radio.
New York Public Radio is comprised of WNYC and WQXR – the two top public radio stations in the country, measured by audience size – as well as The Jerome L. Greene Performance space and the web sites wnyc.org, wqxr.org and thegreenespace.org. Its news, information, classical music and cultural affairs programming and live events reach a combined radio, web and studio audience of more than two million people each week.
