Internships are one of the most important ways students gain experience and start to make contacts within their field. Work experience at a respected company or organization, especially if it’s related to field you might pursue in college, will only strengthen your college application. It’s a great way to stand out from the crowd. An internship will also help you understand how a professional organization operates.
Students who are interested should speak with their counselor, prepare a resume and have appropriate documentation, which includes: passport/photo ID, social security card and working papers (if under 18 years old).
Employers throughout the city can partner with Queens Community House (QCH) and VOYAGES Preparatory High School to help build our future workforce through an initiative known as Learning To Work (LTW). LTW is a unique opportunity that will benefit your business or organization and contribute to the growth and stability of our city’s economy. LTW is based out of VOYAGES Preparatory High School in Elmhurst, Queens and can place over 75 students in subsidized internships citywide. You will benefit from having a motivated young person for up to fifteen hours a week at your site, providing valuable assistance to your organization in an internship that will be supported and paid for by QCH.
