February — May
During this time scholars can expect and find available internships posted to this page. Scholars are advised to check the website regularly as positions can be posted at any time. Interested applicants should send their resume and cover letters to [email protected].
Once scholars have successfully landed an internship through us, we invite them to our Professional Skills Seminar. This program includes what interns need to know to be successful during their internship. We cover racial, equity and inclusion in the workforce, communication skills, and more. This jumpstart to the summer allows scholars to begin their internships on the right foot.
July & August
Throughout your internship, the Internship and Career Pathways program supervisor will be in contact with you for scholar check-ins. This allows us to learn about the awesome work you’ll be engaged in while providing individualized support to our scholars.
We offer Professional Development workshops curated by the Internship and Career Pathways Program Supervisor which helps to hone in on scholars’ talents while helping them to develop new skill sets
At the end of the summer program, we host a luncheon for all current scholar inters and employer partners who worked with our scholars during the summer. This appreciation luncheon serves as the perfect recap as we engage in scholar and employer presentations.
