The Education Alliance is taking the WV Ready Graduate Summer Internship virtual! This summer, 16 rising juniors and seniors will participate in a 4-week virtual opportunity where they will learn knowledge, skills, and characteristics that will lead to success beyond high school graduation.
Each intern will be paired with a business mentor from Dow Inc., West Virginia American Water, or Toyota Motor Manufacturing of West Virginia and will complete a capstone project where they will re-engineer an existing product, process or system in order to address a challenge their host business is experiencing.
In addition to a $100 gift card, and themed SWAG from their host business, each intern will receive a certificate upon successful completion and the satisfaction of helping pilot a new program with The Education Alliance.
Check back at the end of summer to learn about the success of the Virtual WV Ready Summer Internship program.
The WV Ready Summer Internship Program was amazing. The best part of the program was getting to experience multiple types of work and learning what it is like to perform in those fields. Additionally, getting information from people on what is required to begin work in those fields was very helpful.
The best thing about working at Appalachian Power for the WV Ready Summer Internship is getting to experience multiple types of work and learning what it is like to perform in those fields.
