Urban Alliance Interns Receive Placements with Local Organizations

Through the Urban Alliance, five IDEA scholars will start internships this semester, working part-time during the school year and full-time in the summer. In addition to gaining valuable professional experience, the scholars will earn an hourly wage above the minimum wage. They also benefit from the support of an Urban Alliance program coordinator and a workplace mentor.
 
To prepare for their internships, scholars spent six weeks in job skills training. In this semester and during the summer, they will participate in weekly post-high school planning and job and life skills workshops. They will work Monday through Thursday for up to 12 hours a week this semester and up to 32 hours a week in the summer.
