For Employers

Hosting an intern is a great way to build the capacity of your business or organization, and share your skills with an interested young person looking to learn your trade.

  • All wages, payroll taxes, and workers comp are paid by Community Action -- there is no cost to the worksite, and interns are covered under Community Action's Workers Comp Insurance

  • Interns range in age from 16-24

  • A Community Action-based staff person will provide ongoing support to the youth and worksite to help navigate any challenges that occur

Summer internships range from 20-30 hours per week, for 8 weeks in July and August, with possible extensions into the fall.

School year internships range from 5-20 hours per week, for a total of 120-200 hours.
