2024 Summer Teacher Applications Now Open. Apply Today.

This summer, we are looking to place nearly 80 college students in paid internships around town through our Future Focus Internship Program. These internship experiences will allow our students to make extra money for college expenses and help them grow professionally, while providing host companies with exceptionally motivated and hardworking interns from diverse backgrounds. Many Breakthrough college students have already been hired to intern at top-performing companies this summer, such as Accenture, Horizon Bank, Kendra Scott and more. 

But, we still have exceptionally qualified students who need an internship placement. Are you interested in hosting an internship for a Breakthrough student this summer?

The benefits and value a host company gains are numerous. By managing today’s workload and developing tomorrow’s workforce, hiring a Future Focus intern is an excellent way to facilitate success at your company. Host companies interview the student(s) and select the intern(s) who will make the best contribution to their company. In order to create the most beneficial internship experience for both host companies and interns, we ask host companies to provide meaningful work and regular feedback, a full-time internship (29-40 hours per week, 8-12 weeks over the summer), and a pay rate of $15-$20 an hour.

If you are interested in hosting a summer intern and would like to consider one of our students, please contact Kate Garrett, Director of Corporate Partnerships, at kate@breakthroughctx.org
