Companies have several ways of participating in the Plano Mayor’s Summer Internship Program.
Provide at least one student with an eight week, paid summer internship
Internships are a 20 to 40 hour per week job providing the student(s) real-life experience in the workplace – job shadowing executives, observing company operations, working on special projects, and having personal contact with managers and executives regarding future career prospects in the industry.
Underwrite an intern to work at a local nonprofit or governmental agency
For those companies who are unable to host an intern they may choose to underwrite the internship(s) at a local nonprofit or governmental agency. Costs include a $500 program fee and underwriting 20 to 40 hours per week for the intern at a cost of $13 per hour (includes payroll and onboarding costs).
Become a Corporate Program Sponsor
To provide additional support of the internship program, there are several Corporate Sponsorships available. For questions about program sponsorships, please contact Vicki Wait, Vicki@vwaitgroup.com | (214) 577-7975.
