The Summer Career Acceleration Program aims to ensure that rising seniors graduate prepared to enter the workforce with real world experience. The program prepares students for the workforce through a combination of a summer internship, career readiness skills training and a financial literacy workshop. This exciting program can make an enormous impact on these students’ futures. Upon completion of the program, participating students will be equipped with the skills that will bolster job opportunities and provide them with a chance for greater long-term success.
Pinellas County Schools and the Pinellas Education Foundation are seeking business partners to host student interns in the Summer Career Acceleration Program.
The program is returning after a great success during the inaugural summer in 2019 with 112 high school students completing internships at 75 businesses. We hope to see you at our upcoming kickoff event to learn how your business will benefit with a student intern this summer!
