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 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 at their place of business they may chose to underwrite the internship 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 email Vicki Wait, firstname.lastname@example.org, 214-577-7975.
