Facebook Summer Academy Externs will have the opportunity to learn about the day-to-day operations of one of the world’s leading social media networks by being part of a dynamic workforce. Externs will work closely with Facebook Mentors in their respective capacities to gain real-world work experience and on-the-job skills that will help propel them into successful careers. Our goal is to inspire and motivate young people to achieve economic success, stability, and mobility through skills development and early career exploration in the tech industry.

Starting its tenth year, the Facebook Summer Academy has provided over 100 high school externs with meaningful summer opportunities, and will serve more externs during the summer of 2021.

The 2021 Facebook Summer Academy externship will take place for six weeks from Monday, June 21, 2021 to Friday, July 30, 2021, for 30 hours per week.

Please note: Due to COVID-19 constraints, FBA will be entirely virtual. Student experience will differ, and they will not be matched in certain Facebook departments.

Instead, students will have the opportunity to work on community projects with FB employees, learn coding and develop an app.
