SOMERVILLE — The MassHire Metro North Workforce Board (MNWB) was awarded $240,000 through theDepartment of Elementary & Secondary Education’s Connecting Activities grant to fund 160 high school students in high-quality STEM internships with local employers. Interns will be students from our partner high schools in Chelsea, Burlington, Malden, Reading, Revere, Somerville, and Woburn.
This initiative aims to expose students to STEM career fields and build partnerships where both employer and intern benefit. The MNWB Youth team will work with the employers and interns to ensure a mutually beneficial match. Employers can decide how many interns they host between February and September.
To best serve the communities, STEM employer partners who can work with interns who speak Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and Haitian Creole are highly encouraged to apply. We also seek employers who can match students from underrepresented backgrounds with mentors from similar backgrounds.
