Student Internship Program

Each summer, EfTA’s Student Internship Program (SIP) offers bright, motivated rising high school seniors hands-on learning opportunities in their desired career fields. SIP internships are designed to provide valuable work experiences for students  who are just starting to explore career options. The program offers a first step toward furthering their education and figuring out what direction students want to take in life. In addition, the process of applying offers insights to the job search and introduces students to the value of networking and developing transferable skills that can eventually be included in a resume. Education for Tomorrow Alliance partners with about 50 dedicated employers each year to offer each student 80 hours of professional experience that has the potential to shape their career paths. EfTA seeks to give students hands on experiences that help enrich and support leaders of tomorrow.  

That's a Wrap! We have finished out our summer Student Internship Program for 2018! This summer we paired 118 students with incredible business and community mentors for two week, eighty hour internships in Montgomery and neighboring counties.  Collectively, intern hosts are offering students more than 9,440 hours of hands-on learning to encourage early career exploration and development. Students apply at the end of their junior year for internship placements in a variety of industries from small nonprofits to large corporations, with the greatest student demand coming in STEM-related fields.Click here to check out a guest blog post our ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program college intern, Katie, wrote about the program. 
We are especially grateful to our Student Internship Program Luncheon presenting sponsor Sam Houston State University for investing in our student interns. Thank you for partnering with us to strengthening our future leaders!
