Student Internship Program

Summer is just around the corner which means we are starting to plan for our 2019 Student Internship Program! 

We are currently looking for organizations to host an intern or two for two weeks in the summer of 2019. We are looking for all types of organizations to become hosts! Whether you are a small business looking for help with your social media or a large corporation that allows high school students into your labs we would love to have you participate. Your participation as an internship host would be instrumental in providing deserving, competent students with professional development experience.

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 60 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.  

Each intern employer agrees to provide a meaningful, quality opportunity for their interns to learn as much as possible about a career field.  Depending on the nature of the work, some positions will be more hands on than others; job shadowing is okay.  In some cases, an intern will follow the direction of one employee for the full two weeks, and in others, students have to opportunity to rotate among departments.  Employers decide what makes the most sense with their company. Intern hosts are welcome to take more than one student. The internships are structured as unpaid work experience, but some companies choose to pay.  Some companies also opt to hire the students after the internships are complete, but that is the decision of the employer and not an expectation of EfTA.  

Register here to become an SIP host!
