ICYMI – The High School Tech Internship application deadline is OPEN NOW!
This pilot program is an opportunity for Ohio employers to receive reimbursement for establishing a recruitment pipeline by hosting high school interns in tech-related roles. The goal of the program is to provide businesses with the tech talent they need while also providing students with valuable work experience at an early age.
The Departments of Education and Development, along with the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, will be holding upcoming office hours exclusively to provide information and answer questions about the High School Tech Internship 3.0 program on Friday, April 28, 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. This is open to any educational entity interested in placing students in high school tech-related internships.
Educational entities looking to participate in the program can apply now! Email High_School_Tech_Internship@Development.Ohio.gov to begin the application process. Businesses looking to host interns should notify their local educational entity, such as a school district, educational service center or business advisory council. A business cannot participate without partnering with an educational entity.
Internships can start at any time once the educational entity has received notification of approval for funding, but no students can be placed after June 15. Internships must be completed by Oct. 1.
