Internships will run through the summer months and conclude when the student returns to school.

Educational requirements range from high school to graduate school, and out of school youth and young adults are encouraged to apply.

Some colleges will provide course credit for internships when the experience is applicable to the intern’s area of study; students will need to coordinate course credit with their university.
