College Access Program Summer Intern Inquiry

The John and Sheila Connors Youth Employment Program at the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs provides the opportunity for high school and college students enrolled in the College Access Program to complete a summer internship where they are paid for up to 120 hours over a six week period.

The internship program is successful in a variety of ways. It provides an income for students during the summer, develops professional skills, and broadens networking opportunities all while serving as a constructive way for students to remain engaged over the summer.

Every summer we offer rising 10th to 12th grade students a Summer Service Learning Experience focused on learning about issues of poverty and homelessness, building relationships with others involved in social change, getting to know persons who have experienced poverty and homelessness, and engaging in service with Project HOME and other agencies fighting poverty, hunger and homelessness in Philadelphia.
