Adding Value to Internships or Value-Added Internships

November 16, 2022 2pm

Internships provide young adults and seasoned workers with important on the job training and professional experiences to either explore a career path or pave the way for a future working with the organization. These internships are even more valuable to the interns when they are paid. Unfortunately, many times interns are not paid for their time, talents, and treasures because organizations, especially non-profits, typically do not have the resources to offer paid internships. Paying interns adds value to them personally and makes it possible for them to have this experience without having to sacrifice financially.

This exclusive partner webinar will focus on how organizations can find creative and innovative ways to fund internships and will also discuss some lessons learned from an established paid internship program.Featured speakers include Lauren Maples, Executive Director of Partners for Education, Agriculture, and Sustainability (PEAS), who will discuss the Intern to Educator program, grant writing strategies, and creative ways to secure resources to pay interns. Carrie Merson with the San Antonio River Authority will share her experience managing their paid Environmental Education internship program over the years and how government organizations can take advantage of allocated funding for paid internships.

Webinar offered at 2:00 central on November 16th
