Paid Student Internship

Student Internship Program

Partners in Education's Student Internship program gives local businesses the opportunity to provide job experience to junior and senior high school students who have gone through a job readiness training program.

Some details about the program:

  • Your $800 investment gets you 80 hours of support from a job-ready high school junior or senior. All interns have taken an extensive two-month long job readiness training program.
  • Partners in Education manages payroll and provides worker’s comp insurance.
  • The program has seen great success in South County with many businesses repeat clients for hosting interns, and are looking to expand more into North County as they have a lot of student interest but are in need of more business hosts.
  • Businesses that are not ready to host an intern but still want to be involved in the program can sponsor another business to host an intern for $800.
