By participating in CCA's internship program, you gain from the abilities of a creative, motivated, and enthusiastic individual without needing to make a long-term commitment. You also have the opportunity to observe the student for potential permanent employment. In turn, your organization provides one of our enrolled students with practical experience in the workplace.
We require participating employers to offer compensation to interns because it puts the work performed into a professional context. (Conversely, unpaid internships tend to devalue the contributions of our students.) While compensation is up to the employer, we require students be paid at a minimum rate of $10 per hour.
To participate in the internship program, a student must be of junior or senior standing in the program. They may work for five to 20 hours per week during the semester or full time during the summer to earn one to three units. In order to satisfy the internship requirements for three units, 225 hours of work must be completed.
We would be pleased to answer any questions you may have about our program. If you no longer wish to be listed as an internship site, please call or email us so we can remove your information from our database.
