Summer Jobs Wrapping Up

Hard to believe our summer programs are coming to an end. Today summer Earn & Learn students are finishing up their 40-hour internships across the Metro area. Not only do they gain valuable work experience – for some it’s their first paid job – but they travel independently to their job sites on foot and by public transportation.  Jobs include
retail, reception, food service, checking web accessibility, radio production in Boulder, child care and all the chores at a riding stable, among others.  Thanks to all of our employers for supporting our students!  Hope you can all make to the draduation ceremony next Wednesday!
