The City of Orlando is partnering with CareerSource to provide a five-week internship with partners allowing high school students ages 15 to 19 that live in the City of Orlando and qualify for free or reduced lunch, to gain hands-on experience working in their field of interest.
Internships take place June 6, 2022 through July 8, 2022 with students working 30 hours a week for $14 an hour while receiving mentorship from seasoned professionals. After July 8, businesses can choose to keep the student as a regular employee.
Students also take part in an orientation where they learn soft skills such as how to dress for success, work etiquette, and the fundamentals of financial literacy.
Youth Employment representatives will hold open houses at city neighborhood centers allowing students to register for the program while also opening a bank account with partner VyStar Credit Union.
