The Experience of Hosting an Intern

When you sponsor an intern through CRF's Expanding Horizons Internships, you are opening the door for an enthusiastic, motivated, and hardworking low-income high school student. The interns bring a contagious energy to their work and job sites benefit from improved office morale and the opportunity to mentor youth.

  • Interns will work Monday – Friday for a total of 33 hours/week. See seminars and work days schedule.
  • Job sites also choose from two summer sessions: Group A (June 11 – July 8) and/or Group B (July 9 – August 7)
  • Job site supervisors determine intern tasks based on the needs of the workplace. Your intern will gladly help you organize your office, deliver the mail, file important documents, catch up with data entry, and complete any administrative tasks you need accomplished. See a sample work tasks.
