Enable a young person to explore career options and interests by offering an internship through EHSS's nationally recognized Career Exploration Program (CEP).
CEP internships offer students invaluable hands-on experience that helps them "try on" a career to determine the experience and training required to be successful in that field.
We welcome a wide range of internship opportunities for our students, and we partner with a diverse group of businesses and organizations to provide students with real-world experience in a professional environment.
A Summer Experience that Can Change a Life. CEP internships are seven weeks long and occur during the summer months. Admission into CEP is limited to high school juniors and seniors only and is highly competitive. Students must complete one of our two job readiness programs and submit a detailed application, letter of recommendation, and resume. We interview each student and select the top candidates, who are then matched to the most appropriate internship based upon the student's career interest and the skill sets required by the internship partner.
The CEP Internship Process. Becoming a CEP internship partner is straightforward. Simply contact our CEP Coordinator or Senior Program Director to discuss the internship process and your needs and complete an application and assignment description, which is due no later than April 15th each year. You will have the opportunity to meet the intern prior to the start of the internship to ensure it's a good fit for all. Your intern will arrive on the start date, eager to learn and appreciative of the opportunity.
When you become a CEP partner and offer a summer internship, you'll experience the satisfaction of empowering a young person who will add value to your organization and strengthen our community. CEP interns receive a stipend and CEP Partner businesses are requested to make a contribution to help cover program expenses.
For CEP internship partners, it's important that you know the rules for hiring teen workers. Download a summary of teen labor laws on this page and visit http://www.youngworkers.org for more information.
