2023 SYIP HIGHLIGHTS
In its eighth year of operation, the Summer Youth Internship Program continues to serve our community. The Children's Trust, Miami-Dade County, Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS), CareerSource South Florida, EdFed - The Educational Federal Credit Union, Kenneth C. Griffin Foundation, and the Foundation for New Education Initiatives, collaborated with a single intent in mind: to provide a meaningful paid summer internship opportunity for youth across Miami-Dade County.
The unique structure of this high-quality summer internship program included parent, student and employer orientations conducted virtually, online pre-internship training for interns, student interns assigned to certified M-DCPS teachers, a curriculum consisting of weekly assignments using an e-portfolio, an online interface, and www.miamiinterns.org for enrollment and matching of student interns and employers. New this year: Charter Schools were invited to participate in the program of which 14 schools participated with a total of 83 students.
