Citizen Schools Launches High School Summer Internship Program

This summer, Citizen Schools welcomed its first cohort of Alumni High School Interns to its headquarters at 308 Congress St in Boston. Through a competitive application process, four Eighth Grade Academy alumni were selected, out of a pool of over 20 candidates, to participate in the inaugural High School Summer Internship Program.

Through the program, interns have not only had the opportunity to work in a professional setting at Citizen Schools, but also to explore career paths through tours at Harvard Business School, Ovia Health, Deliotte and Merck, as well as present on their experiences as Citizen Schools students at partner sites including Google, Wayfair, GE, Mintz Levin, TripAdvisor, John Hancock and Cambridge Associates.

Watch the video below to hear from our interns about how their summer is going - and how Citizen Schools has helped position them for success!
