Steppingstone Scholars

Host a high school student intern

Posted on March 19, 2019

Steppingstone Scholars is gearing up for the 2019 Career Readiness Program. Like last year, Steppingstone is working in partnership with the Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN) to offer paid internships for 10th-12th grade students.

Would you be interested in hosting a high school student this summer? Students will be paid through PYN at no cost to your organization. If so, here is a link to the Internship Program Site Supervisor Form.

Internship Program Structure
Dates: Monday July 1- Friday August 2, 2019
Working Hours: Mondays-Wednesdays (15 hours/week)
Professional Development Hours: Thursdays (with Steppingstone Facilitators)

Program Goals:

  • Provide youth with meaningful real-world learning opportunities, professional connections, and career awareness.
  • Connect youth to a caring adult who provides work-related support and feedback, and promotes development of 21st century skills.
  • Develop necessary, but experience-appropriate, tasks valuable for both the youth and worksite.

We would love to expose our students to your expertise! Please send any questions to
