City Summer Internship is a paid internship program for 20 rising eighth and ninth grade girls to explore STEM career opportunities in Boston while building their work readiness skills, future dreams and plans.
City Summer Internship blends five weeks of “success seminars” in work readiness with engaging workplace explorations with a focus on STEM skills and careers.
Participants travel with our staff via public transportation to businesses throughout the Boston and Cambridge area.
