InternBoston is committed to providing teens and young adults with a specialized internship experience that allows them to explore a career area, gain real-world experience, build confidence, and develop essential life skills.  Our signature Summer60™ program develops and provides unpaid, customized summer internships for high school juniors, seniors, and college students in the greater Boston area.  Summer60™ is designed to provide students with a minimum of 60 internship hours (generally 15 hours per week) for 4 weeks during the summer. InternBoston offers internships in several career areas including finance, marketing, hospitality, engineering, journalism, law, and many more.

An internship can help students decide on a college or major, strengthen a college application, inspire a career choice, and establish professional contacts.  Our Internship Coaches find the right internship with experienced mentors while providing coaching and guidance to our interns throughout the process. Every intern receives an updated, professional resume at the completion of the internship.






Internship Connection

Established in 2004, Internship Connection provides high school and college students with “real-world” career experience through prestigious Summer or Gap semester internships in Boston, New York City and Austin. Students live at home and work part-time, leaving time for other activities. Program components include: career guidance, resume and interview prep, and feedback on reflective journals.

 Knowing that colleges seek out high school students who demonstrate an in-depth academic interest or talent, we help students identify that “thread of interest” and match them to a mentor in a related field: STEM, business, law/government, arts, startups/technology and more.

 For college students, an internship is extremely valuable as a way to either confirm or eliminate a future college major, saving both time and financial resources. In addition, students begin the process of building a resume and professional contacts.
