Summer Term

Interns, students and scholars over the age of 18 looking for safe, flexible summer housing in New York City and an immersive experience of fun and globally-minded leadership training are encouraged to apply.

Opportunities for professional and personal growth abound; through a variety of programs and activities within the House, Summer Residents are challenged to share and explore the wide diversity of opinion and experiences found across the I-House community.

The daily interactions, along with our exclusive summer programming, help build the core values of Respect, Empathy and Moral Courage that characterize the I-House Experience.

Summer Programs

During the summer, I-House programs are planned to build community among the Residents. The events planned are designed to get Residents acquainted with each other and with New York City. You never have to explore NYC alone!
Programs being planned for this summer include excursions in and around New York City, cultural events celebrating the diversity of the I-House community, social events including barbeque and I-House’s signature event, Ice Cream Socials.
