PHENND Seeks Vendors for Summer Youth Internship Program

Posted by PHENND on April 2, 2024

PHENND, as the manager of the West Philadelphia Promise Corps program, which aims to provide high school aged youth with post-secondary preparation, seeks organizations and individuals who can provide a high-quality summer internship program to 15-20 high school students in 2024. We expect programs to be approximately six weeks in length, and engage young people in meaningful work experiences for about 20 hours per week.

We expect the provider will cover:
– Adequate supervision for all participants
– Facilities/space in which to run the program
– Any needed supplies, technology or equipment the participants will use *
– Guidance/training for participants that covers both the job-specific skills needed as well as general workplace skills (e.g. timeliness, communication, attention to detail, follow through)

The ideal program will combine hands-on learning and actual work experience (in which a real product or service is produced for an external entity). The goal of the program is to provide high school-aged youth with what might be their first work experience.

Proposals are due by Friday, April 26th.
