Hartford Student Internship Program Hosts Student Showcase

Hartford Student Internship Program Hosts Student Showcase

On May 30, 2019 at Capital Community College, the Hartford Student Internship Program (HSIP) of 2019 hosted their Spring Showcase where visitors experienced courage, creativity and collaboration all in one place!

The Hartford Student Internship Program is a ‘cornerstone’ career and college development strategy to prepare Hartford youth, ages 16 to 19, for career pathways. In the hearts and minds of our youth and everyone involved in making this program a success, it’s truly much more than that!

Our youth embark upon a journey beginning with seven focused workshops, they transition into project and employment training, refresh their resumes, add new skills learned from their internships, improve their ability to network and conclude with diverse experiences to help define their futures!

Through partnerships with community based organizations, local businesses, philanthropic supports, and the Hartford Public School system, HSIP is able to provide an extension of learning in an effort to prepare and inspire students for the future. Mentoring, tutoring, and other wraparound services are also provided based on student needs. As a result, students not only develop fundamental work ready experiences, students develop meaningful relationships and networks that go beyond their time in high school.

Today’s Spring Showcase brings together everyone’s time, talents and treasures in hopes to share our youths’ success, our program’s success and our community’s success right here in Hartford.

 “The Hartford Student Internship Program (HSIP) is a great opportunity for high school students. With internships, students gain access to a “real” world experience where they can develop additional skill-sets to be utilized in high school, college and career.   Over and over, I heard from students how their work-site made them feel a part of a “team”.  It was a sense of belonging and the understanding that their contribution, dedication, and learning was of great importance.  They showed up each day ready to learn AND work.” states Tamara Mitchell-Davis,  the Assistant Director of the Office of Family Engagement & Community Partnerships at Hartford Public Schools who manages the program.

Thank you to all of our high school participants, our school coordinators, partners and funders of the Hartford Student Internship Program (HSIP).
