Many interns working remotely, having virtual meetings becoming experts at Zoom and Microsoft Teams!
The summer internship is a 5-week work-based learning experience between M-DCPS high school students and businesses and organizations throughout Miami-Dade County. The Children’s Trust, Miami Dade County, CareerSource South Florida, and South Florida Educational Federal Credit Union are sponsoring organizations.
This year most of the internships are being completed by student interns working remotely from home! They have already become experts of holding online meetings with teachers since March 2020.
Students intern for 150 hours with stipends (equal to Florida minimum-wage) paid through the SYIP grant. Almost 2,400 students will be hired as interns this year.
