        • Lane County high school students (ages 14+) are invited to apply for a paid summer internship experience in the industry of their choice. Student applications will be reviewed, interviews will be scheduled with those who qualify, and then students will be matched with a local host company. Industry hosts will identify 2-4 projects for the intern to work on during the experience. Students and industry will review the projects, identify learning objectives and key skills to build before signing the learning agreement. See more information here!
