The Experience of Hosting an Intern

When you sponsor an intern through CRF's Expanding Horizons Internships (EHI), you are opening the door for an enthusiastic, motivated, and hardworking high school student.

Join these outstanding companies and firms and provide a unique and impactful opportunity to change a young person’s life through EHI today, download the Sponsorship Agreement Form.

This opportunity is unique from other programs as EHI provides high school juniors with a paid five-week internship and nearly 50 hours of intensive college and career preparation. All of the EHI students are low-income, first-generation college-bound.

Our EHI students are truly remarkable and have so much talent, but they have had limited exposure to professional career opportunities in their underserved communities. This incredible program changes the lives of the students and positively affects participating companies through the interns’ youthful energy and unwavering drive.




Benefits of Sponsoring an EHI Intern

This is a mutually beneficial opportunity for both the interns and the host. The professional work place skills, critical thinking, and confidence students gain in this program helps them continue to further their academic growth in college and enter the workforce prepared and eager to contribute. Often, EHI hosts want their interns to return the following summer, some offering full-time positions after the student graduates from college.

Job site supervisors determine interns’ tasks based on the needs of the workplace, see sample tasks and take a look at the Site Supervisor video. The intern will gladly help sites gain insight on any administrative tasks, help with spreadsheets or other office work, or even expand social media footprint.


How Interns are Selected

Prospective interns submit extensive applications containing all of the information found on a resume, along with a one-page essay, and two letters of recommendation. CRF than interviews all applicants and prescreens based on general job readiness, career interests, and qualifications.

Job sites interview 2-3 intern candidates per position and select the one they feel best meets their needs. Interns work a total of 125 hours within-in a five week during summer months. Job sites choose from two summer sessions:

  • Group A (June 14 – July 11) and/or
  • Group B (July 12 – August 8)
