Insercorp has partnered with Southampton County Public Schools and Opportunity, Inc. to provide internships to develop the local work force. Our first candidate through the Career Services Out-of-School Youth Internship Program is Rochelle Scott.
Rochelle learned of this program through Mrs. Karen Powell, Career Services Specialist. She was also in the Career Services Program from the time she was in Middle School up until the time she graduated High School.
"I like this program because it has a lot of opportunities that my age group can reach for and get for free. This program is grant-funded and what I like about that is the paid internship, gas refunds, and that they provide you with clothing for work. Anything you may need, this program will help you with." - Rochelle Scott, Intern
Rochelle is interning with us because of her interest in Graphic Design. "What I love about this internship is that its hands on and very informative", said Rochelle. We are happy to have her as a part of our team and are continuously amazed by how quickly she learns as well as by how diligently she works.
The Career Services Out-of-School Youth Internship Program is a grant funded program through Southampton County Public Schools and Opportunity Inc. of Hampton Roads. It is designed to assist out-of-school youth with the skills and tools necessary to enter into the high-demand occupations and gain livable wages.
The Career Services Program Goals are to provide their students with exceptional services to ensure successful transition into the workforce, post-secondary education, or military. In order to accomplish this goal, they will assess each student to ensure that any necessary skill barriers are addressed; provide workshops/training to increase their students' skill levels. They provide assistance through paid internships to help students obtain occupational skills.
The Career Services Out-of-School Youth Program provides students with the following services:
Students enrolled in the program are expected to give 100%. Out-of-school students are required to attend G.E.D. classes. All students who are provided internships are required to report to work as scheduled. Those individuals who are not showing a commitment to the program and their own personal goals run the risk of being withdrawn from the program.
