About

Internship Connection is a structured, educational program that provides high school and college students with career experience through Summer or Gap Year internships matched to their academic interests or talents. Students gain a competitive edge when applying to colleges and jobs by confirming in-depth interest and experience in an academic/career field.

For two decades, we have established relationships with mentors in the Boston Tech community who continually seek out our interns for STEM related internships. At work, students are involved in hands on projects including a wide variety of tasks depending on their interests: research, programming, engineering, marketing, fundraising, social media, etc. They experience entrepreneurship first-hand at startups that may be at the Harvard Innovation Lab, MassChallenge, LearnLaunch, or Techstars.

Our counselors hold advanced degrees and work individually with each student. Program components include: career guidance, creating a resume, interview prep, establishing the internship, supervision through journals designed to promote reflection and a letter of recommendation from the workplace to include in college and job applications. Parents tell us that learning these life skills builds confidence, independence and assurance when choosing a college major. Students live at home and benefit from a part-time internship designed to fit their schedule.
