How many students will be selected?
We plan to select 20 students for the 2019 program. That number may change based on the number of qualified applications we receive. The students will be placed in groups of 4 into 5 different host agencies/businesses.
Will transportation be provided?
Students and/or their families will be responsible for transporting them to and from the kickoff event and each day of the internship program. We understand that transportation can be a challenge for some students. That’s why one of the changes this year will be to recruit 4 students from each high school, to increase the likelihood that families can collaborate on a carpool. We hope that this will reduce some of the burden on students’ families.
Will meals be provided?
Lunch will be provided to students and families at the Saturday kickoff event. However, students should pack a lunch for themselves each day during the work week. Agencies who plan to provide lunch for students on a certain day will try to notify them in advance.
Will students be paid?
Students will be awarded a small stipend at the end of the work week by their host organization.
Is there a financial obligation for students?
There is no financial obligation for students to apply. Materials needed for students to successfully complete this program will be provided by the host agency.
What is the dress code?
Students will be working in professional environments and should come to work each day in business casual attire.
