Become a "Job Site"
The Experience of Hosting an Intern
When you sponsor an intern through CRF's Expanding Horizons Internships, you are opening the door for an enthusiastic, motivated, and hardworking low-income high school student. The interns bring a contagious energy to their work, and job sites benefit from improved office morale and the opportunity to mentor youth.
- Interns work Monday through Friday for a total of 125 hours for the 5-week program. See suggested work day schedule.
- Job sites choose from two, 5-week summer sessions: Group A (June 18 – July 15, 2020) and/or Group B (July 16 – August 12, 2020).
- Job site supervisors determine interns’ tasks based on the needs of the workplace, see suggested job tasks, and take a look at the Site Supervisor video. Your intern will gladly help you gain insight on any administrative tasks, helping with spreadsheets or other office work, or even expanding your social media footprint.

How Interns are Selected
Prospective interns submit extensive applications containing all of the information found on a resume, along with a one-page essay, and two letters of recommendation. CRF then interviews all applicants and prescreens based on general job readiness, career interests, and qualifications. Job sites interview 2-3 intern candidates per position and select the one they feel best meets their needs.
Sponsoring an Intern is as easy as making a $4,500 tax-deductible donation directly to CRF.
$4,500 sponsorship covers an intern’s wages, transportation stipend to seminars, insurance, and workers’ compensation, as well as management and staffing costs of the program. To sponsor an intern, download the Sponsorship Agreement Form. Sponsors may also underwrite the cost for an intern to be placed at a non-profit job site designated by the sponsor or CRF.
