Retain Paid Interns for Summer 2022

DCMO BOCES received funding from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) to implement a pilot program that will help transition students from high school to careers locally.

Most of the $112,000 grant will offset the cost of paid internships for students during the summer of 2022. In addition, five employers will be selected to receive a $5,000 stipend to implement a plan that improves graduates opportunities to remain employed after the internship program.

The online application process is simple and guides employers to analyze their capacity to host an internship program. The grant funding will issue payment to the employer directly to pay for a payroll invoice giving employers the freedom to use their time to coach graduates rather than handling employment tasks.

DCMO BOCES is looking for employers to apply for the funding. For more information the Career Destinations Team at [email protected] or visit
