The Norwich Historical Society hosts a 6-week internship program during the summer months of July and August at the Norwich Heritage & Regional Visitors’ Center. NHS welcomes high school or college students to apply for the internship.
The internship entails staffing the Norwich Heritage & Regional Visitors’ Center under the supervision of the Norwich Historical Society Executive Director. Students will be expected to greet visitors in a professional and friendly manner, provides tourist information to visitors, and answers guest questions.

In addition to interacting with the public, student interns will be responsible for researching and writing an article on a historical topic from the “Discover Norwich” exhibit in the Visitors’ Center. The article must be completed at the end of the internship program and the article will be published in the Norwich Historical Society’s newsletter and in our “Historically Speaking” column in the Norwich Bulletin. Students will be expected to present their research findings at a public event at the end of the internship program.

Students will take a field trip to the Otis Library Local History and Genealogy Room for research and will receive a walking tour of the Norwichtown Historic District. Students will have a training session and will be given a small stipend based on the availability of funding.
