Good for your business. Good for New York.
Support a motivated student's career development and help build a pipeline for the future in three steps:
1) Identify a team or individual as the intern's supervisor
2) Develop a job description for the internship (Should you need it, Futures and Options can help craft a job description)
3) Connect with Futures and Options to discuss payroll, set your hiring timeline, and meet your dedicated site monitor.
Who are the students in the internship program?
Futures and Options interns are New York City junior and senior high school students.
What does an internship look like?
- As an employer partner, you offer a paid internship for at least ten hours per week during the school year, or at least 25 hours per week during summer months, or both.
- Interns commit to attending Futures and Options career development workshops through the course of the internship.
- Students are hand-matched with an internship site after they have successfully completed the Futures and Options application and a rigorous screening process.
- Partners interview and select qualified candidates, and assign them to supervisors who are eager to work with and mentor young people.
