Seeks Summer Interns


New Canaan’s local news website,, is seeking high school students interested in journalism and the business of community news for its second annual Summer Internship Program.

Students from all grades are encouraged to apply, including new NCHS grads.

Strong candidates will be resourceful, naturally curious self-starters who enjoy writing, learning about the people and community around them and work well independently. The program is designed to serve members of the local community, though the internship absolutely is open to candidates who live in surrounding towns.

Launching on Monday, June 29 and running for eight weeks, the internship is an entirely remote job, meaning participants will work from home, as well as businesses, cafés and government buildings around town.

We’ll buy our summer interns’ coffee, pay their mileage and iPhone bills and outfit them with equipment including a video tripod and mount during the internship.

Participants will learn the nuts-and-bolts of covering a community online—including shooting and editing video, writing hard news and feature articles, photography—and there’s an opportunity for interns who are interested also to learn about the business development of an independent news site, including marketing, sales, development and design.

Those interested should contact owner and editor Michael Dinan at
