Launch Internship is designed to give students — typically high school juniors and seniors — a first-hand look at a career they’re interested in. Internships can take place over the course of a semester or a summer, and typically last 100 to 120 hours. CareerConnect staff help match students with internships and provide support throughout the experience, including a skills-training class that students take prior to their first day of work. Students may complete more than one internship, either returning to the same workplace or trying a different field.
Great! Please talk to the CareerConnect staff member at your school (ask in the main office if you don’t know who it is) or email us and we’ll talk you through it.
Students participating in the Launch Internship Program can earn fellowship grants or financial incentives based on their internship performance. However, Launch does not offer wages or stipends.
No, CareerConnect provides transportation and offers assistance with work clothes.
