Internship Program FAQ

How does the internship program pairing work? 

This internship program is facilitated by the FWEA SYPC and allows those interested in an internship in summer 2023 two paths to choose.

  • The first option allows the individual to fill out an interest form and an SYPC member will help pair them with an internship that most aligns with their preferences.
  • The second option allows an individual to review the list of organizations offering internships. If that individual is interested in a particular organization, they may reach out to the SYPC if they want further information.  

Am I guaranteed an intern or placement in an internship? 

Although the committee would love to pair all interested participants in an internship, there are no guarantees of placement. 

I just submitted my internship interest form, when will I hear back? 

You will receive a confirmation email after submitting your interest form. Within two weeks of your submission, someone from the committee will reach out to you directly.   

Do I need to be currently enrolled at a university? 

Nope. There are no educational requirements to participate in this program. However, it is recommended to be either enrolled in high school or have a high school degree at minimum. 

Are there any age restrictions?

It is recommended to be 16 years or older to participate in this program.

Do I need to be a Florida resident? 

No. However, it is likely that a participant will be required to provide their own housing, if the position is in-person. The applicant should coordinate with their internship organization if they have any questions.  

How long will the internship last? 

Duration requirements for an internship will be decided between the individual and organization. The organization and individual should coordinate on start and end-dates, time expectations, and type of work (in-person, hybrid, remote).
