Host an Intern

Host an internHost an Intern – June and July
For over 45 years, the Career Exploration Program (CEP) has matched diverse summer internships with motivated high school students. CEP provides youth the opportunity to experience a specific career field as they gain real-life work experience.

From nursing to banking to law to nonprofit services to municipal government: youth get the opportunity to “try on” a broad selection of private and public sector career opportunities. Kaiser Permanente, First Republic Bank, San Francisco City Supervisors, SF SPCA are just a few of our fantastic partners.

For many young people, this internship is their first glimpse of a professional career after completing the ten week job-readiness training at Enterprise.

 

job-readiness trainingCEP offers a social support system through:

  • Site Supervisors who are volunteers that structure the work experience and offer on-site direction.
  • Volunteer Advisors (recruited and trained by Enterprise) who check in with the youth and help them process their experience.
  • A Program Manager who organizes all aspects of the program and is available to support the interns, supervisors, and advisors.
  •  


    CEP also includes program activities and exercises designed to supplement the young person’s experiences and include:

  • A workshop series designed to build on aspects of job readiness/workplace expectations
  • Weekly journal assignments aid in youth reflections
  • A final project to celebrate the internship and highlight aspects of interns’ experiences and knowledge gained.
