Internships

PSworkingInclusiveU offers a one-year internship program for students to prepare them for competitive, integrated employment by totally immersing them in a work environment.

In their final year in the InclusiveU program, students participate in three internships to explore a variety of career paths and to acquire transferable and marketable job skills. Our goal is for all of our students to graduate from the program with competitive, inclusive employment.

Qualifying students are placed in three 10-week placements on campus in work-sites that are of interest to them, including the campus bookstore, food services, and auxillary services. There is also a transition week between placements where an instructor teaches valuable job readiness skills.
